Michael Wolf captures Hong Kong’s grid-like architectural anatomy

‘Architecture of Density’ by German photographer Michael Wolf, reflects the other-worldly aesthetic of urban landscapes.

Hong Kong is a highly populated, vertical environment, with thousands of high-rise buildings propelling into the sky.  By photographing Hong Kong’s architectural anatomy, Wolf’s photography project illustrates the area’s dense apartment complexes, revealing the grid-like structure of the city.

Wolf’s Architecture of Density captures the concentration of tall architecture in Hong Kong with an emphasis on the patterns and colours that emerge when observing the structures from a distance. Although no people are seen in Wolf photographs, some of the images feature washing hanging out of the windows, revealing a glimpse of the lives of the people that live within them.
