“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.
In “Building M+” from PKN Hong Kong Vol. 19 Aric demonstrates the way by which the exhibition conveys the processes of architectural design, places the M+ construction within history, and surveys unrealised and failed construction plans.
