BTA at the Aedes Metropolitan Laboratory
Join Bing Thom Architects’ Project Director, Earle Briggs, in Berlin on May 26 for the opening of the exhibition Constructing Culture: Hong Kong’s West Kowloon Cultural District.
The exhibit features a closer look at the landmark architecture that is currently under construction at Hong Kong’s West Kowloon Cultural District, including Bing Thom Architects’ Xiqu Centre. Earle will present the design narrative and innovative construction of the Xiqu Centre that is set to open in late 2018. A modern home for Cantonese Opera, the Xiqu Centre is a blend of theatre, art, and public space, with a mandate to preserve and reinvent Cantonese opera and other Chinese traditional theater for local and international audiences. Earle moved to BTA’s Hong Kong office shortly after BTA won this international competition and has been leading the design team since 2012.
