Hong Kong M+ Pavilion (First Prize International Competition) - Built 2016

The winning pavilion is designed to offer a respite from hectic city life, and
impressed the judges with a smart simplistic approach, which allows the Pavilion
to blend into its surroundings. Mirrored external walls camouflage the
architecture, reflecting the surrounding expanses of greenery and immersing
the building within its Park setting.

To further this experience, the pavilion’s main exhibition space is elevated,
allowing it to float above the foliage, creating the opportunity for artwork to be
appreciated against a backdrop of the Hong Kong Island skyline with spectacular
views out over Victoria Harbour. The building is designed to be surrounded by
natural light, away from noise. Inside, gallery spaces are created by polished
concrete floors and white walls – a flexible backdrop for multidisciplinary art exhibitions and performances.
