Situated in one of the world's most dynamic regions, the Arts Pavilion will serve not only as the temporary home for Hong Kong’s M+ Museum of Visual Culture, but will be a significant public event space overlooking Victoria Harbour. The small pavilion, in addition to serving as an exhibition space, creates a multi-level indoor/outdoor event platform, with 2 open surfaces that rise above the exhibition roof, unfolding like a pair of wings. One surface opens toward the West Kowloon Cultural District and the future M+ building to create an outdoor performance seating area extending into the Park. The other is a wing lifting up toward the iconic Hong Kong waterfront, creating a public urban lookout point embracing the beauty and energy of the harbour.
