“We Come in Peace”. _ Arts Pavilion Design Competition for West Kowloon Cultural District in Hong Kong.

(GyraArchitects & Barrie Ho Architecture)

The Arts Pavilion will be located in the West Kowloon Cultural District within a maritime environment, Victoria Harbour.

However this place will be a future huge cultural complex surrounded by green forest and seawater.

The Arts Pavilion should take these points into account; not only the deep cultural character it will have, but also the industrial place where it belongs.

In this way, the structure of The Project is designed evoking the structure of a boat. Sixteen light metallic ribs disposed in a radial way form the whole pavilion.

Nevertheless a visitor will have the experience of being under a tree as the interior has been designed with the form of a trunk and branches so that nature gets inside the pavilion.
