The M+ Museum Design: Love it or Hate it?


A few days ago the WKCDA finally announced who would be designing the M+ museum at the West Kowloon Arts District. It's been a much talked about project in the art community with 642 million dollars being invested in the project. Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron was finally announced the winner and based on the photos that were released, this blogger is a bit underwhelmed. It's not Hong Kong Cultural Center ugly but it certainly doesn't have the visual impact that the MoMA or the Centre Pompidou have.

It should be noted that Herzog & de Meuron also designed the Bird's Nest in Beijing so they are capable of designing beautiful modern buildings. Maybe we need to see the M+ in person to get the full visual impact of it? Personally, it reminds me of corrugated construction plastic that I've used in set designs. See below...

So, what are your thoughts on the M+ design? Love it or hate it? Share them below in the comment section!
