SEARCH IN BRIEF

 
West Kowloon Cultural District Authority seeks Expressions of Interest for 60,000 sq m facility

Expressions of Interest are being sought for a world-class museum for visual culture in Hong Kong’s West Kowloon Cultural District, a major new arts and cultural development centred on 17 core facilities. The District Authorities are inviting local and international practices to submit Expressions of Interest by 15 October 2012 however guidelines state that international firms must collaborate with a Registered Practice of The Hong Kong Institute of Architects with an office in Hong Kong.

Under the name ‘M+’, the new building is an ambitious project compared in scale to New York’s celebrated Museum of Modern Art. Stretching over 60,000 sq m, concepts are to be rooted firmly in local context ‘providing a Hong Kong perspective, with a global vision, expanding to other regions of China, Asia and the rest of the world’. Facilities will include over 15,000 sq m of exhibition space and 14,000 sq m for conservation and storage, an education centre, an archive library and bookstore, theatres and screen facilities, artist-in-residence studios and outdoor green spaces, subject to the future detailed design.

Deadline for submission of an Expression of Interest is 15 October 2012. Contact Katerina Hojgrova for more information.
