OMA Architectural Studios of Rem Koolhaas and partners has revealed a masterplan for Hong Kong’s new cultural district. The plan, on exhibit in Hong Kong until November 20, will also be exhibited at the Biennale in Venice August 29 through November 21 2010.

OMA,  West Kowloon Cultural District -  Honk Kong

West Kowloon Cultural District is a new cultural and creative centre for Hong Kong to be built in a 40 hectare area across from Victoria Harbour. OMA architectural studios under architect Rem Koolhaas announced the masterplan presented for the competition. The project redesigns the whole area as a huge public park with three urban villages inside it. The village theme was chosen because it is familiar to the inhabitants of Hong Kong and because it allows them to tackle the project by dividing it into smaller areas that are easier to work with. The villages are urban in character and cover all aspects of the creative process, from practice to performance. One key element in the proposal is the experimental museum M+, where the figurative arts, cinema, design and popular culture are overlapped and set side by side like the stripes in a bar code; the project also includes an Art Factory and an exhibition centre, with pedestrian bridges to link Kowloon Park with the neighbourhoods nearby.
