Arts Pavilion

An international competition was held to create the Art Pavilion, prologue to the M+ Museum by Herzog & de Meuron in West Kowloon Cultural District. The proposal was a collaboration between ESKYIU and LEAD. A simple flexible gallery space is encased in a transformable skin. The external surface of the pavilion uses a temporary fine construction mesh that will be replaced by a steel mesh upon completion of M+, indicating the dynamic West Kowloon site as a work in progress. The proposal has the potential to project and host a series of transformative programmatic elements in future phases. The proposal was awarded commendation entry in the competition.
