Hong Kong helps Libeskind forget Stirling
Daniel Libeskind has put his disappointment at not winning this year's Stirling Prize behind him with the announcement that he is to design a new creative media centre in Hong Kong. The US$100 million (£55.5 million) landmark building for the City University of Hong Kong will look down on the rest of the campus from its site below the Lion Rock and Nine Dragon mountains. Split into an academic facility and a public outreach centre, the 30,200m 2 building will house the schools of creative media, computer engineering and media technology. It will also provide 4,500m 2 of exhibition space and a virtual-reality experience for both the public and creative industries.
