Studio Ideas and Inspiration

Superstar, MAD

Posted in interesting projects, studio 2a_2009 by Sarah Gelbard on 2 November 2009

The Superstar was designed by Chinese architects MAD and it’s destined to become “A Mobile China Town” with shopping malls, Chinese food restaurants, and other cultural exhibitions. The project will be presented at the 11th Venice Biennale in the “Uneternal City” section where 12 architects are introducing their ideas for “an anonymous suburban area of Rome.”

The new China Town will be a floating city which will move all around the world and being a modern city of the future it will also be green as it’s going to produce its own energy and all the waste will be recycled. The Superstar will provide housing for 15,000 inhabitants who will enjoy health and sports facilities, drinking water lakes, and a “digital cemetery” among others.

The Superstar will be able to “land at every corner of the world” and it was called the Mobile China Town as it’s “MAD’s response to the redundant and increasingly out-of-date nature of the contemporary Chinatown.”
