Norman Foster's “City Park” has been selected for the $2.8 billion West Kowloon Cultural District. According to a statement on the Foster + Partners web site, the 100 acre project is the largest cultural initiative in the world today. It will include a contemporary art museum, theatres, arts education centres, galleries, studios and commercial space, along with a 57-acre public park.
The art contemporary museum on the site, M+, is led by Lars Nittve, the first director of the Tate Museum. M+ will open in 2016.
