The West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA) announced today the appointment of Herzog & de Meuron + TFP Farrells , a partnership of two leading architectural practices in the world and in Hong Kong, to design the building of M+, the museum for visual culture, in the West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD).<br />
Announcing the appointment after approval by the WKCDA Board in a meeting today, Chairman of the Board, Mrs Carrie Lam, said, “We are thrilled that a world renowned architect will now take up the design of a flagship facility in the district, supported by a leading practice in Hong Kong. The WKCDA, together with the design team, will continue to engage the arts community to ensure detailed designs of the building would meet their requirement and anticipations.”<br />
 <br />
Situated on the waterfront of the Victoria Harbour at the edge of the 14-hectare Park, M+ will be one of the first batch of arts and cultural venues to be completed in the WKCD.   Principally it will be a museum for the Hong Kong people, firmly rooted in the location and its unique culture, which provides a Hong Kong perspective, with a global vision, expanding to other regions of China, Asia and the rest of the world.  M+ will provide space for artists to meet, exhibit and experiment, as well as housing a world-class permanent visual culture collection.  The winning design was selected unanimously by an international Jury Panel.<br />
