MAD - Erdos Museum

MAD, a Beijing based arch office, has some pretty ambitious work. And a lot of it is getting built. Like the Erdos Museum. I actually like the way they solved the skin material problem with horizontal striping instead of supersmooth c&c panels. It gives the shape a better texture and you can understand the scale a little better. The only thing is that I wish it could still be in the middle of the Gobi desert and not in Erdo's new city centre. To encounter this building over a dune would be incredible, like happening upon a spaceship.
