M+ Museum, Hong Kong

Herzog & de Meuron 

Devoted to contemporary visual culture, the M+ Museum is the flagship of a project that seeks to transform the city into an artistic hub with an international reach.

On the banks of Victoria Harbour, the museum is organized in an inverted T, with a spacious base accessible from the surrounding park, and a slender tablet on top of it that serves as a screen for projecting digital art.

The complex contains close to thirty exhibition galleries which offer plenty of spatial variety within the podium, while work spaces for the institution’s administration services fill the 12-floor block.
