Revery’s Xiqu Centre Featured on Hong Kong’s $100 Bill
We are delighted to share exciting news that Revery’s stunning Xiqu Centre in Hong Kong will be featured on the new HK$100 banknote (for issue 2019 – 2020) depicting the theme of ‘Cantonese Opera’ and honouring Hong Kong’s rich art and cultural legacy.
As explained by Mr Gao Yingxin, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive of Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited, “Our new series of HKD banknotes depicts the city’s attractions and reflects our close affinity with Hong Kong people while expressing our vision of building an even brighter tomorrow together.”
Conceived by Revery Architecture in joint venture with Hong Kong’s Ronald Lu & Partners, the sophisticated Xiqu Centre represents the gateway to the new West Kowloon Cultural District. With its spectacular curvilinear façade replicating the beaded stage curtain of traditional opera, Xiqu is scheduled to complete late 2018 and will be the first venue to open within Hong Kong’s prestigious new cultural precinct.
Everyone at Revery Architecture, in both Hong Kong and Vancouver, is extremely proud and honoured to witness the Xiqu Centre officially recognized on the new HK$100 banknote, emphasizing its social and cultural significance to the ‘Hong Kong Spirit’.
