|Summary||**M+ Museum for Visual Culture**|
The West Kowloon Cultural District Authority ("WKCDA") announced today details of the design competition for M+, Hong Kong's future museum for visual culture and launched an open invitation to architectural practices in Hong Kong and worldwide to submit Expression of Interest to participate.
M+, scheduled for completion in 2017, is an ambitious project. The scale of the museum building alone, at around 60,000 square metres, will be on par with the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Situated on the waterfront of the Victoria Harbour at the edge of a 14-hectare park, it will be one of 17 core arts and cultural venues in the West Kowloon Cultural District ("WKCD"). M+ will be the flagship hub for visual culture from the 20th and 21st century, alongside major performance spaces, creating interdisciplinary exchange between the visual arts and the performing arts in the city.
Facilities will include over 15,000 square metres of exhibition space and 14,000 square metres for conservation and storage, an education centre, an archive library and bookstore, theatres and screen facilities, artist-in-residence studios and outdoor green spaces, subject to the future detailed design.
Deadline for submission of an Expression of Interest is 15 October 2012. Further details are available in Annex 2 and on WKCDA's website (http://www.wkcda.hk/en/architectural_competition/mplus/index.html).
