Mass Housing

Issue #44

For issue 44 Colors visited the Choi Hung (Rainbow) housing estate, one of the oldest tower blocks in Hong Kong and home to 43,000 people. Surrounded by a maze of motorways and intersections, Choi Hung is a city within a city. With Triad gangs, a soap opera icon, a brothel, a shopping mall packed with fake Guccis, a Buddhist temple and an illegal squatter camp all vying for some precious space, the estate is a microcosm of modern China.
