Hong Kong is filled with densely-packed apartment buildings that millions of its citizens call home. DongDong Wu’s boyfriend lived in one known as the “Monster Building” and she shared this video of what life is like in one of these massive developments. About 10,000 people live in the five-block complex.
Awesome Hong Kong
Hong Kong is loaded with tall and colorful apartment buildings like the ones we saw in The Block Tower. Artist Max Hattler created this experimental animation by taking thousands of individual building photos and sequencing them to create vertical and horizontal movements.
These laser-cut lamps feature designs inspired by the neon signs of Hong Kong. Not only are the lamps cool to look at, but they cast awesome shadows onto your walls and ceiling. They’ll be made in two materials, with the pricey copper version offering the sharpest images, while the acrylic version is far more economical.
YouTube channel Never Too Small is packed with great examples of highly-efficient living spaces. Among the designs is this 33 square meter Hong Kong apartment, which has a treehouse structure above the dining table. The cozy lofted bedroom is lined with pine wood to keep it from feeling cramped.
Inspired by early filmmakers like Eadweard Muybridge, James Medcraft created his hypnotic short film by slicing imagery captured from a moving vehicle in Hong Kong. Like reassembling slivers of shredded paper, he creates a work of art from what would otherwise be mundane imagery.
