I used to have this phobia that buildings could topple over, and looking at the MAD Urban Forest sky scraper, I feel that it was a legitimate fear. Although inspired by the beautiful, mountainous landscape in Chongqing, China, my shaking knees believe they should have look elsewhere for inspiration.

With full length glass wrapping around each abstract-shaped level, the illusion of floating floors is achieved. the MAD Urban Forest is definitely a magnificent sight to behold, I’m just not certain whether it’s a building to set foot in!
