Hong Kong Palace Museum
Situated at the western end of the West Kowloon Cultural District, the project combines the design principles of Hong Kong’s contemporary urban culture, traditional Chinese visual arts culture and traditional Chinese spatial arrangements, as well as an intelligent combination of smart technologies and human touch for the best outcomes.
Sitting on the waterfront of Victoria Harbour, M+ Museum is an art and cultural hub to support the city’s creative economy. The museum is one of the 17 cultural projects completed in the West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD) on Hong Kong’s harbourside.
Value of Low Carbon Urban Developments
The built infrastructure of our cities, the types of buildings, the parking and public transport network, as well as water and electricity networks determine the cities’ energy use and carbon emissions. Research suggests that roughly 30 per cent of future ‘committed’ greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions will occur due to new urban building and transport systems[i]. Therefore, energy-inefficient urban developments can lock us in on a high emissions trajectory.

The world must take concerted actions to achieve deep decarbonisation without delay. As a member of the global community, Hong Kong must set for itself ambitious targets to achieve the same goal. Moving towards carbon neutrality can bring ample and diverse development opportunities, enhance Hong Kong’s competitiveness and support sustainable development.
