Chinese firm MAD architects imagine a futuristic Chinatown as a mobile 3-D star to house 15,000 people and include lakes, spas, sports facilities and even a digital cemetery. Chinese architect firm MAD unveiled their radical design at this year’s Venice Biennale of Architecture, an exhibition held every even year in the city.
Already nicknamed ‘Superstar’, the movable city is the phenomenal concept based on the more traditional Chinatowns of the likes of London and San Francisco. The completely sustainable space age creation will generate its own energy and recycle waste without having to litter host cities. It will also include health resorts, gyms, freshwater lakes and a digital cemetery to remember the dead.
It’s a proposal for a new kind of China Town: one which can reflect the dynamic, ever-changing nature of contemporary Chinese society. The Superstar is an enormous, free-standing community that hovers above the city. The Superstar is not limited to one time or place: it can move around the world, offering an alternative, Chinese vision of the future to all the world’s citizens.
