The Yabuli Conference Center is home to annual summits hosted by the China Entrepreneur Forum.

It has been envisioned as a progressive architecture – one that fosters growth, innovative thinking, and is continuously evolving.

Cited along the axis of a mountain, MAD’s design of the “Yabuli Conference Center” is a tent-like structure that is defined by soft, sloping lines. Casually mirroring its mountainous backdrop, it settles quietly into the landscape. While humble in its presence, it does not lose the dynamic atmosphere of northern China – integrated with the sky, the ground, the snow, the forest, and the mountains.

This project has been longlisted in the cultural building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
