The Arts Pavilion (the “Pavilion”) will be used as an exhibition and event pavilion for organizations and interested artists, designers and other parties planning to stage independent exhibitions and events. It will also be the primary home for exhibitions and programs organized by M+, Hong Kong’s museum for visual culture, before the completion of its museum building in late 2017.
The Idea was to project a synthesis of speed, urbanization, and light projection into a form that shifts with flux like trajectories in a metallic panelized body. The body torques along the edges with stealth like streamlines creating an urban hub with dynamic angles and rooftop access. The shifting of planes are regulated by intensities of surrounding activities, framed views, and accessibility. Along the panelized surface, variations of size and transparency give the form a dynamic pallet for creating an urban pavilion.
The pavilion sits at the edge of West Kowloon facing Hong Kong’s Central business district. The iconic skyline can be viewed and experienced with a new geometric experience of urban dynamism. The architectural lighting features and green roof access allows for night recreational viewing of Hong Kong’s skyline.
