On Monday, we shared OMA’s master plan proposal (a series of 3 villages that re-think traditional arts components) for the West Kowloon new arts district. As we mentioned, OMA’s plan is competing with two other master plans – Foster + Partners and Rocco Design Architects Limited. We’re excited to share these two master plans with you this week and get your feedback for the plan that you feel is most successful.
The West Kowloon Cultural District Authority is beginning the Stage 2 Public Engagement exercise which will last for three months in order to provide the public with the opportunity to review all three plans. The plans will be judged upon their creativity, accessibility, connectivity, integration, vibrancy, uniqueness and sustainability.
A questionnaire will be distributed to each person viewing the plans asking for his/her opinion. The Panel is very interested to hear the public’s opinion and the views from the exercise will have significant bearings on the Conceptual Plan Option eventually selected by the Authority. It makes perfect sense for the public to have a strong voice in this new arts district, and we’re looking forward to hearing yours as we share the plans with you.
