“MOMA GRAND, the pedestrian-oriented Linked Hybrid complex, sited adjacent to the site of the old city wall of Beijing, aims to counter the current privatized urban developments in China by creating a new twenty-first century porous urban space, inviting and open to the public from every side. Filmic urban public space around, over and through multifaceted spatial layers, as well as the many passages through the project, make the Linked Hybrid an open city within a city.”
– Steven Holl Architects
Modern Land's Most Iconic Development
MOMA Modern Land’s most famous project is the MOMA Grand, an eight-tower, mixed-use residential development in Beijing, China, hailed as an “architectural marvel” by TIME Magazine. The project has received numerous awards, including the American Institute of Architects Award for Sustainable Design, and the Popular Science Engineering Award for Largest Geothermal Housing Complex.
MOMA Grand, designed by Steven Holl Architects, covers 121,300 square metres with a total gross area of 600,000 square metres. The apartments’ modernist design features clean-cut lines and an all-white colour theme. The community has a grey-water recycling system and the world’s largest geothermal heating/cooling system, which stabilizes the temperature within the complex of eight buildings.
The design of the project promotes interaction among residents in public spaces that vary from commercial and residential, to educational and recreational. The entire complex is a three-dimensional urban space in which buildings on the ground, under the ground, and over the ground are fused together.
