Micro-Apartments : Ballardian Living Conditions in Hong Kong City

100,000 of Hong Kong City labourers live in sub-divided apartment units averaging 40 square feet (3.7 sqm), with rents standing up at nearly $1,300 a square foot, 35% higher than New York City.

The Ballardian living conditions in one of the most densely populated city in the world, are documented in a reportage released by the “Society for Community Organization” an HK-based advocacy organization. All the cramped units are depicted from the only vantage point able to capture the entire surface: the ceiling.
