a20_Michael-Wolf_Architecture-of-Density

Michael Wolf’s photographic series the Architecture of Density highlights the emergent landscape of Hong Kong’s high rise apartments. The formalist portrayal of these buildings depicts them as “abstractions, never-ending repetitions of architectural patterns” according to Wolf.

For a full overview of Wolf’s work see his Life in Cities site.

Interview with Wolf on his appropriated imagery from Google Street View (2011).
