Are those fluoro high-rise blocks real? I’ve never been to Hong Kong, but I would never in a million years imagine it to be the way it is portrayed in Michael Wolf’s jaw-dropping photographs of a very, very crowded city. German-born Michael’s project Architecture of Density is a slightly harrowing look at the structure of living in Hong Kong, innocently making it appear like something out of a sci fi film.
These sprawling areas the size of whole towns are filled with high-rise blocks containing a dizzying amount of people, all crammed in like towered tins of sardines. Michael isn’t looking at these houses patronisingly or with an air of scorn, he’s just a little curious. For another glimpse into Michael’s fascination with the world around him please don’t go anywhere without having a look at his Bastard Chairs series; you won’t regret it.
