The internationally acclaimed British architect Norman Foster’s Foster+ Partners have been chosen as architects for the vast (40 hectares or almost 99 acres) West Kowloon Cultural District in Hong Kong.  Amongst the best coverage of the announcement and proposal one may find that of the quite dynamic design magazine Dezeen, here, replete with photos and articles on the two proposals Foster + Partners beat out; one by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas and OMA, here, and the other by Hong Kong firm, Rocco Design Architects, here.

Naturally enough, the official website of the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority has a great deal of coverage of the Foster + Partner plan and what it may mean for the district, here, including photos of physical models, animation and video, interactive 3D models, a questionnaire and more.
