West Kowloon Cultural District in the Making 2017

Type:VideoLanguage:EnglishCategories:Arts & CultureStatus:On going Description: The West Kowloon Cultural District will be developed into a world-class integrated cultural district. When all the constructions are completed, the West Kowloon Cultural District will be one of the largest cultural projects in the world. Citizens are anticipating the development of this enormous public space.
In the beginning, the West Kowloon Cultural District chose “City Park” as the concept for development. The aim was to transform the West Kowloon Cultural District into an open space. From the infrastructural plan to the commencement of the construction, the project has undergone many changes. All facilities, including Xiqu Centre (to be opened in 2018), M+ museum of visual culture (to be opened in 2019), and Hong Kong Palace Museum, are developed according to the concept of sharing with the public.
In fact, it is very difficult to execute the ideology of “sharing with the public”. The West Kowloon Cultural District has to fulfill everyone’s needs, while incorporating local, traditional, international, and modern elements into the park. Only through these means could the West Kowloon Cultural District truly be a unique public space.

The West Kowloon Cultural District chose “City Park” as the concept for development. All facilities, including Nursery Park (opened in 2015), Xiqu Centre (to be opened in 2018), M+ museum of visual culture (to be opened in 2019), and Hong Kong Palace Museum, are developed according to the concept of sharing with the public.

Nursery Park is used to provide an open space for citizens when all the projects in West Kowloon Cultural District are under construction. Citizens can enjoy a stroll around the Nursery Park and cycling in the park as well. They can also join the Nursery Park tours and workshops, in order to learn more different tree species that will be planted in the future park of the West Kowloon Cultural District.

No matter what changes occur in the infrastructural plan of West Kowloon Cultural District, all projects will develop based on the concept of “open space for the public”.
