Forming a unique cluster of heritage buildings located at the heart of the Central district, the Central Police Station compound—now known as Tai Kwun, Centre for Heritage and Arts—once served as an important base for law and order in Hong Kong. Formally a“one-stop-shop”facility housing a police station, a prison, and a magistracy, the site was fully decommissioned in 2006.
In 2008, the Government of Hong Kong SAR announced its partnership with The Hong Kong Jockey Club to revitalise the Central Police Station compound, and a few years later, Marc & Chantal was given the incredible opportunity to be the creative partners of this one-of-a-kind project.
To create a public exhibition about the Peak, Marc & Chantal led research into Hong Kong’s unique heritage and natural wonders.

This travelling exhibition was commissioned to communicate about the Louis Vuitton heritage to Asian customers. The project was an evolution of an earlier exhibition we had designed for the brand, “Travel & Travellers”, showcasing the glamourous and adventurous lifestyle of the 19th Century traveller through a broad range of antique Louis Vuitton travel accessories. The Art of the Automobile exhibition presented visitors with a collection of objects related specifically to road travel.
