cheungvogl architects has designed an installation structure for M+, a museum for visual culture located within hong kong’s west kowloon cultural district. part of art basel HK 2014, the scheme allows the public to experience curating exhibitions through an engaging display. visitors are encouraged to observe, understand and design the way the institution’s future spaces will be programmed. the exhibition presents the museum’s growing collection with interactive magnetic images of artworks, along with the building’s architecture, undertaken by herzog & de meuron.

the lightweight structure is comprised of 21 modular concrete blocks, connected with 500 reinforced steel bars and 138 planks of plywood, resulting in a veil of translucent screens that dissolve boundaries between internal and external space. through its materiality and construction, the permeable and transparent design appeals to visitors of all ages, promoting thinking and communication. the exhibition re-examines everyday spaces to become places for inspiration and cultural education.
