Ma Yansong (马岩松) is a young architect whose Beijing firm Mad recently won an international competion for the design of a landmark residential tower in Mississauga, Canda's seventh largest city. Dubbed the 'Marilyn Monroe Building', it is a spectacular and sensuous skyscraper that was the favorite choice of the judges, the press and the public.
Danwei TV recently caught up with Ma and asked him some questions about the Marilyn Monroe Building, and his views on architecture in China.
