ARCHITECTURE

Xiqu Centre, Hong Kong

A world-class facility conceived to allow Xiqu – Chinese opera – to be preserved as a contemporary Chinese art form and cultural heritage in Hong Kong. Occupying a prime site of 13,800 square metres, the building provides a lantern-like entrance to the West Kowloon Cultural District. It employs the traditional “Moongate” motif with a dynamic treatment of the façade. The building’s flow, or “Qi”, is expressed with curvilinear paths and forms and its leisure space includes training facilities, auditoria and a tea house.

The project, in collaboration with Bing Thom Architects, is scheduled for commission in 2016.
