Building M+

What does it mean to establish an institution at the same time as constructing its physical building?

Building M+ charts M+’s journey from a vision on paper to a museum of visual culture moving into its concrete home. As a new kind of global institution based in Hong Kong, M+ has worked closely with Swiss firm Herzog & de Meuron and a team of international collaborators to articulate its identity and ambitions through architecture and materiality. Through footage of the construction process and interviews with architects, engineers, builders, and partners, Building M+ reveals how the final form of the building is not only a fitting response to M+’s geographical location and functional needs, but also an embodiment of the museum’s core values.
