Located within the West Kowloon Cultural District, the 65,000sq m venue is designed by renowned Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron – the brilliant minds behind famous structures such as the Beijing National Stadium (aka the Bird's Nest) and Prada's flagship store in Tokyo – in partnership with architecture firms TFP Farrells and Arup.

Inside, the building features 17,000sq m of exhibition space across 33 galleries, and houses various facilities and public spaces, including a rooftop garden, research centre, multimedia library, restaurants, cinemas, and the Found Space, which caters to major installations.
