West Kowloon Cultural District
In order to further secure its place as a world-class city, Hong Kong is in the process of developing a brand new cultural district on a prime piece of real estate located along Victoria Harbor. The space will include performing art spaces as well as the massive M+ contemporary art museum. The museum will certainly transform Hong Kong’s art scene. Currently the vacant piece of land is being used for Mobile M+: Inflation, a display of inflatable sculptures designed to generate excitement for the upcoming museum.
