Ballistic Architecture Machine

Ballistic Architecture Machine
Longlisted for Dezeen Awards 2022 architecture studio of the year, Ballistic Architecture Machine is an architecture studio based in Beijing, China.


Ballistic Architecture Machine (BAM) is a multidisciplinary architectural design office in Beijing, China.

"It is our unwavering stance that landscape is the most important design realm of the 21st century," said BAM.

While always focused on the landscape spaces of the urban realm, BAM's strategy of "just say yes" has led to a diverse body of work, which fits uncomfortably into traditional definitions of Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, Architecture or Installation.

The perpetual debate within the professions around the medium of landscape regarding the relationship of landscape to aesthetics, culture, and the environment further illuminates BAM's enigmatic slogan: "Nature is an idea."


This project has been longlisted in the architecture studio of the year category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
