Space in Hong Kong

Michael Wolf's "Architecture of Density" – photos which reward close inspection – from a show at the Robert Koch Gallery:







"[Michael] Wolf was born in Munich, Germany in 1954. He studied first at the North Toronto Collegiate Institute in Canada, then UC Berkeley and, in the mid 1970s, with Otto Steinert at the University of Essen, in Germany. Published monographs include Sitting in China (2002) and China im Wandel (China in Transition) (2001). Hong Kong: Front Door/Back Door will be published by Thames and Hudson in 2005."

BLDG,

In a similar vein, check out work by "Palla" (Kawahara Kazuhiko) in Japan.

Having just visited China, these pictures of the highrise buildings that are being built all over China show how unbelievable the new housing is for the Chinese. I have neve seen so many cranes building new skyscraper homes for the people and wonder how the cities can support so many millions living in the environs of each city.
