Building M+

“The idea is to introduce the movement of peoples between Asia and the rest of the world.”
Curator Aric Chen takes us on a tour of the under-construction M+ Museum of Visual Culture (to be completed late 2017) in Hong Kong, and the exhibition he has put together of numerous architectural works in the form of model and drawings.
