Everyday HybridityDr Paul O'Connor
"Although I’m accustomed to seeing buildings towering over me, I was awestruck by the skyscrapers of Hong Kong. Perhaps it was the amount - covering the island, a mix of apartment buildings, offices, and hotels. Or maybe it was the layout. As opposed to the grid format of Manhattan which allows you to see a straight-line of buildings, Hong Kong’s layout is curvaceous. Along winding streets, skyscrapers looked down on you from every direction."
This is a great account of Hong Kong’s dizzying urban spectacle from a New Yorker.
