Hong Kong, China (2014 - )
This new institution will be a 8,000 square meter museum, located on the upper public floors of a highly prominent mixed-use development (by KPF) in Kowloon, with stunning views of the Hong Kong harbor. The museum is designed to display a family art collection and to receive temporary exhibitions curated in association with a network of Chinese galleries and European lending institutions. The circuit of twelve galleries, of varied sizes and heights, is divided into two parts around an exterior sculpture court.
Museoplan created the initial study that proved the feasibility of the museum and is designing all of the galleries and spaces for associated programs, to include an education center, administrative offices and art storage. A special glass tube façade is being designed by SO-IL to create a strong exterior identity that distinguishes the museum from surrounding uses.
