M+ is the new museum for visual culture in Hong Kong, built for the people of the city. It is dedicated to presenting 20th and 21st century art, design, architecture and the moving image – works that have global significance with a Hong Kong perspective.

By presenting its collection in innovative ways through rich, diverse exhibitions and education programmes, the future 60,000m2 M+ building will be the vital meeting point for artists and audiences to explore, experiment and engage. The building, therefore, for now and the foreseeable future, remains to be the museum’s main tool.

Following an international competition, the celebrated Swiss architecture firm of Herzog & de Meuron, working with Hong Kong-based TFP Farrells, has been selected to design the M+ building.

Although the building is scheduled for completion in 2018, M+ has already embarked on a number of programmes and exhibitions, and begun to assemble its permanent collection.
