Walking in Hong Kong

 

Hong Kong has been one of my favorite global cities for nearly a decade now. This short film focuses mostly on the city’s architecture, which has always been impressive and continues to develop as more people settle from mainland China and elsewhere.

The last time I was there, I’d recently seen a series of photographs featuring the city’s practice of “cocooning” buildings in colorful wrap during construction. Once I started paying attention, I noticed these buildings everywhere I went.
