With over 2000 pieces to the How Hotel name including those of Damien Hirst, Anish Kapour and Jeff Koons, the hotel opened to the public in 2013. The Founder of the hotel emphasised the significance of art and design, with the inclusion of its own, for want of a better word, ‘museum’, crossing the boundaries to which it is commonly assigned.
The How Museum launched in September 2017 with an exhibition curated by Infrastructure alongside the acclaimed art film ‘Manifesto’ starring Cate Blanchett. A second successful exhibition, ‘Zaha Hadid: Eternal Flow’ was launched in March as a collaboration with the eponymous London-based Architecture and Design giant, devised and driven by the Infrastructure Team. The space is a means of exhibiting some of the most exciting talent from around the world but also a way of showing the talent from it’s native China.
