Hong Kong, that crazy place.

A city of chaos and infinite variety. Once my home for a few years, whenever I go back I'm still amazed by it. Especially on those rare clear days, as on the right.

I think it must be where my love of architecture first began, some of it's ugly, and a lot unnecessary, and a few just down right dangerous, but together they're fascinating.

Now I live surrounded by Victorian terraces and 70's flats in cold, rainy London. Not a bad thing, just very different.

Here's a little something I drew when I was last out there.

I love it! I lived in HK for 4 years. My brother has lived there 3 times, and he is just about to graduate from architecture school. He too became facinated with the buildings/density. His final project is actually for a residential building there.

I love the line drawing, it really captures the feel.
