Foster and Partners

  • Comment

Foster and Partners has won the competition to design a £2.18 billion arts, cultural and entertainment district on 1.5km of reclaimed waterfront in west Kowloon, Hong Kong. The 40ha scheme includes a major performance venue, theatres, concert halls, a Modern Art museum, cinemas, shops and restaurants. Seventy per cent of the space will be used for parkland. The facilities sit under a flowing canopy inspired by the local landscape and traditional Chinese art forms and calligraphy.

Foster and Partners received £270,000 for its winning entry, while the second prize of £135,000 went to a team of local architects led by Philip Liao. The first of the new facilities is expected to be completed in 2008.
