Facing Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong, the M+ Facade lights up nightly as one of the largest media facades in the world
We’re delighted to present some of the highlights from the M+ Facade that have illuminated the Hong Kong skyline in the past year, including commissions: In Search of Vanished Blood by Nalini Malani, The Shape of Light by Ellen Pau, and Touch for Luck by Moniker.
An enormous display, the M+ Facade measures 110 metres across and 66 metres tall. Over 5,500 LEDs are embedded into the concrete trunk of the facade, sandwiched between the corrugated terracotta tiles.
At 6pm each evening, the LEDs are activated, and the tower turns into a breathing skin. It showcases a dynamic mix of works, offering moments of play, humour, poetry, intellectual reflection, and meditative contemplation to thousands of onlookers.
