These photographs of Hong Kong cubicle apartments are a disturbing combination of vertigo and claustrophobia. According to the SoCO, about 100,000 people in Hong Kong live in one of these 40-square-foot apartments, dividing their lives into small, contained areas. Taken from a bird’s-eye-view, these revealing photographs give us Westerners a little more reason to be thankful.
