Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron have beaten rival studios Renzo Piano and Toyo Ito to design a HK$4.98 billion ($642 million) Asian modern- and contemporary- art museum.

Known as M+, the building is scheduled for completion in 2017 and will anchor the 17 cultural and entertainment venues at Hong Kong’s HK$23.5 billion West Kowloon Cultural District, according to a statement released yesterday.
