Date & Time13.03.2017
Andrea Chan An-yu, a 2016 BSSc (AS) graduate of the CUHK School of Architecture, has won the First Prize at “A Temple for Hilma”, a competition that seeks design proposals for a museum dedicated to late Swedish artist Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) and her pioneering abstract paintings.
The Jury’s comments: “Mesmerizing and deep, [Chan’s proposal] presents a wonderful way of experiencing Hilma af Klint, each visitor being led on a journey within the museum. The idea of displaying the art in specific and color-coordinated spaces promises to be truly immersive and unique, and shows an understanding of and connection with af Klint’s work and movement.
Rather than simply providing space for her art, the Temple strives to be a part of the experience, seeking to convey af Klint’s ambience to each visitor in a physical way.”
