Product description

From the Inside Flap

Hong Kong is a city without ground. Physically, the city is built on steep slopes with no ground plane, and, culturally, there is no concept of ground. Density obliterates and redefines public/private spatial relationships. The perception of distance and time is distorted through compact networks of pedestrian infrastructure, public transportation, and natural topography in the urban landscape. Cities Without Ground explores this condition by mapping three-dimensional circulation networks that join shopping malls, train stations, public transport interchanges, public parks, and private lobbies as a series of spatial models and drawings.
