M+ will be the new museum for 20th and 21st century art and visual culture in the WKCD. M+ is an ambitious project, to create a museum on the physical scale of the world’s largest museums of visual culture, aspiring over time to attain an international status comparable to that of MoMA in New York, Centre Pompidou in Paris or Tate Modern in London. It aims to be a museum that is rooted in and shaped by its location— Hong Kong— and the unique culture of this city: it is fundamental that it should be a museum for the people living and working here. M+ should have a Hong Kong point of view with a global perspective.
The Competition is to select the best combination of concept design and Design Team. It is intended to select the Design Team that demonstrates it will be best able to work with the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA) to develop its building concept to be an excellent place for 20th and 21st century visual art, design, architecture, moving image and popular culture, enjoyable to visit, while being efficient and cost effective to construct and operate. WKCDA is looking for a concept design that is original, aligned with the overall master plan, sustainable and which reflects the exciting and unique program of M+.
