Hong Kong was once bequeathed the title of the world’s ‘most liveable city’ by The Economist in 2012. What many people don’t know is that there is a fraction of Hong Kong residents living in unacceptable conditions. Chinese human rights organization ‘Society for Community Organization‘ commissioned a series of photographs showing a number of unacceptable living spaces viewed from overhead.
According to the SoCO, over 100,000 people live in tiny “cubicle apartments” in the city. These are 40-square-foot living spaces created by dividing already-small apartments into multiple units.
Can you believe these are actually apartments?
