West Kowloon Cultural District

I came to see what progress has been made on the West Kowloon Cultural District – the great cultural enterprise of the Hong Kong government, which invested HK$21.6 billion out of surplus tax revenues in 2006 to establish Hong Kong as a cultural centre, with a masterplan drawn up by Norman Foster.

The site is amazing, on the north side of the harbour on reclaimed land :-

The building of M+, the museum part of the project, designed by Herzog and de Meuron, is coming along:-

Meanwhile, there is a temporary pavilion with an exhibition by Danh Vo, a Danish Vietnamese artist, with Isamu Noguchi, Japanese American.
