The Future of Museum and Gallery Design conference

On 13-15 November the University of Hong Kong hosted the latest in a series of conferences on museum architecture co-organised by staff in the Department of Architecture and Built Environment (ABE), along with University of Leicester, Central St Martins/University of the Arts London and the Chinese University Hong Kong. The event was opened by Suzanne MacLeod, Head of the School of Museum Studies at Leicester and the keynote speakers included Lars Nittve, founding director of Tate Modern and Director of Hong Kong's new 'M+' Museum, and Wang Wei, contemporary art collector and co-founded of the Long Museum, Shanghai. Jonathan Hale and Wang Qi of ABE both presented papers, and an edited book containing the best work from the conference will be published by Routledge/Taylor and Francis in early 2016. The event was sponsored by UKTI and the K11 Art Foundation.
