The Cloudscape of Haikou is located in Century Park along the Haikou Bay coastline.
Home to both an intimate library and a waystation for park visitors, the sinuous, biomorphic 11,000-square-foot vessel expansively embraces the surrounding sea, sky, and land, blurring the boundaries between them. Inviting visitors on a journey that transcends time and space, like reading itself, The Cloudscape embodies MAD’s “anti-material” approach, which priorities spatial feeling over structural expression.
This project has been longlisted in the cultural building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
