Online Eco-leadership Programme
Do you know how many insect species live in Hong Kong? 10,000, 20,000 or 30,000? No one knows the exact number, but for sure, they exceed any other groups of animals or plants in terms of diversity. Another certainty is the paramount role that insects play in the functioning and health of ecosystems, even if these roles are often underappreciated or even misunderstood by most people.
Nature Discovery Park and the School of Biological Sciences of The University of Hong Kong co-developed the online eco-leadership programme, which aims to introduce the ecological importance of biodiversity and participants will learn about the direct resources insects provide to human, as well as the influence they have in science and art.

Hong Kong gets its very first temple dedicated to the world’s most popular toy building bricks, LEGO®, with the LEGO® Discovery Centre newly opened this March at K11 MUSEA. We break down some fun facts and key attractions that the city’s own keen builders are sure to look forward to.
Did you know the first LEGO® block was made from wood in 1932? Danish carpenter Ole Kirk Kristiansen came up with the word “LEGO®“ after the contracted Danish phrase leg godt, meaning “play well”. As machinery and plastics became readily available, the company’s iconic interlocking toy brick system was born, and LEGO® has since become the building blocks to bring imaginations to life.
Now standing on the world stage, the LEGO® brand not only offers its iconic toys, but also boardgames, films, video games, retail stores, and theme parks — including 27 LEGOLAND Discovery Centres all around the world, and with the latest opening at K11 MUSEA this March.

Asia's tallest rose has arrived at Victoria Dockside! The first-in-Asia showcase of Rose II (2007) by internationally acclaimed German sculptor Isa Genzken marks the launch of Art Karnival: A grand celebration of world-class art at K11 MUSEA. Like the act of presenting a rose to a loved one, the arrival of Genzken's rose is like a gesture of warmth and compassion for the wider community of Hong Kong.
This signature artwork by the artist is a 8.5-metre-tall monumental stemmed rose that sprouts at the edge of Victoria Dockside — in full bloom against Hong Kong's iconic skyline. Made of steel, aluminium and lacquer, Rose II was shown for the first time in New York in 2010 at the Museum of Modern Art. With its supersized scale, inorganic materials and organic subject matter, the blooming rose forms a surreal juxtaposition next to the soaring skyscrapers of cities such as New York and Hong Kong.
Born in 1948, Isa Genzken is a crucial figure in contemporary art, continuously experimenting with materials, techniques and forms of display in sculpture across four decades. She is particularly active in exploring the links between modern architecture and urban spaces through her outdoor sculptures. She represented Germany at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007, and was also the subject of major solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Bern (2019); Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2015); The Museum of Modern Art, New York (2013); and New Museum, New York (2010). Her work is included in the collection of Gemeentemuseum, The Hague; Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; and The Museum of Modern Art, New York, amongst others.
Inseparable from the Cartier brand, the panther motif has reigned as an indomitable symbol of the house ever since its emergence in the early 20th century. Regal, elegant and graceful, this magnetic feline is going on the prowl at Cartier’s “Into The Wild” pop-up at K11 MUSEA.
Open for a limited time only, “Into the Wild” takes you on a journey through the rise of the Cartier panther—from its transformation under the helm of Creative Director of High Jewellery Jeanne Toussaint, to its current status as a dynamic and lively symbol of creative inspiration for the house and the global panther ambassador community.
Venture into the wild as you meander through the “Follow the Panther” corridor and step into the “Delve into the Panther Timeline” room, where the feline’s rise to prominence is on full display. Celebrate the brilliant mind behind the panther, Jeanne Toussaint, and explore the iconic design through a series of short films and photogenic experience tunnels. Lastly, discover the collection and find your very own favourite Panthère in the final showroom.
Celebrate the wild spirit and register now to enter the Cartier “Into the Wild” Pop-up.
