This publication features a tour of the WING Cultural Center in Hong Kong, China, produced by Laboratory for Explorative Architecture & Design. The building we are going to visit today is located in the Chai Wan district, a part of the Chinese city that is gradually becoming a place where artistic activities are particularly in the spotlight.
View of the exterior of WING Cultural Center in Hong Kong
Quickly surpassing its reputation as a former industrial center, Chai Wan is taking time off the many buildings of its past to house more and more buildings celebrating creative and innovative activities. The imposing cultural Center WING is added to this landscape to offer its users an area reserved for artistic activities such as contemporary dances, exhibitions, theater and various events of this type.

At the same time, WING also fulfills an important social function in Hong Kong: it can be transformed into residential space or work to meet the growing needs of city dwellers for this type of buildings. In this way, the LEAD project also intends to address a strong criticism of the housing construction policy and the negligence of local authorities with regard to cultural life.
