International architecture competition organized by the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (the “WKCDA”) that invites interested design teams (the “Participants”) to take part in a Single Stage Design Competition (the “Competition”) for an Arts Pavilion to be situated at the West Kowloon Cultural District (the “WKCD”).
The Arts Pavilion (the “Pavilion”) will be used as an exhibition and event pavilion for organizations and interested artists, designers and other parties planning to stage independent exhibitions and events. It will also be the primary home for exhibitions and programmes organised by M+, Hong Kong’s museum for visual culture, before the completion of its museum building in late 2017.
Subject to the approval of the WKCDA Board and conditions outlined in the “Implementation of The Winning Entry” of these Competition Documents, the Competition intends to lead to the award to the First Prize-winning team of the contract for consultancy services for the detailed design and implementation of the Pavilion until its full commissioning.
The objective of the Competition is to select a design proposal for the Pavilion that creatively responds to the Design Brief and requirements set out in the Competition Documents. The WKCDA seeks a design that is cost-effective, original, inspiring, highly-buildable and sustainable.
