Herzog & De Meuron help plan a new contemporary art space to open in a Hong Kong jail

Historical Hong Kong's disused Central Police Station could become a new non-profit visual arts space.

 

Architecture firm Herzog and De Meuron in collaboration with Purcell Miller Tritton presented a project to the Hong Kong government in 2010. The firm's initial plan was rejected in 2008 on the grounds of it being too unconventional, according to the chair of Heritage in Hong Kong.

 

An initial fund of HK$1.8bn is to be provided by the Hong Kong Jockey Charities Trust to cover the renovation works and the museum's first years of operation.

 

The initiative is being supported by non-profit art organization Asia Art Archive (AAA), in partnership with the of British curator David Elliott acting as consultant to the project. (Elliott directed 2010 Sidney Biennial among other exhibits.)

 

Making over 19th century British-colonial jail is hoped to be finished by 2014. One key aim of the initiative involves finding a home for the non-profit Hong Kong-based institution.
