“Amazing Walk” by MAD new work for Milan Design Week 2024

The internationally renowned design media Interni invites MAD Architects / Ma Yansong and Amazon to showcase the “Amazing Walk” installation at the Cortile della Farmacia courtyard of the University of Milan during Milan Design Week 2024.

The “Amazing Walk” blurs the boundary between built and natural environments in a surreal way. Made up of hundreds of triangular elements, the structure stands 7.5 meters tall without internal columns, reflecting the shape of mountains.

This open design invites exploration and imagination, offering visitors the chance to connect with each other and immerse themselves in the beauty of their surroundings.

This installation is enveloped in a semi-reflective, transparent skin that allows for a visual connection with the 100-year-old courtyard while still providing a sense of shelter.

As night falls, lights and mist gently blur the edges of materials, making the ‘Amazing Walk’ feel like it’s light and floating.

The “Amazing Walk” is constructed from sustainable aluminum alloy and covered with a semi-permeable composite membrane, the pavilion offers varying visuals under different lighting conditions, reflecting light uniquely during the day and at night.

Numerous virtual reality applications enhance this installation, offering a deeply engaging experience that brings surreal elements to life.

This is the seventh time MAD has participated in Milan Design Week. Some of its previous exhibited works include “Boundless” (2016), “Heaven” (2018), “Freedom” (2021), “Momentum” (2023), etc. Source by MAD Architects.
