🌍 Our pick of the day 🔝⠀⠀ Checkout this awesome aerial shot by @itsbernie81⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Windows | 1 // My theme this week is "windows", and I will share with you three different sets of windows from three very different parts of Hong Kong. The drone has given me the ability to take photos of the edifices of our buildings from a geometrically perfect angle and height, and to present them in a way that does justice to their sheer scale. We are no longer bounded by what we can see on the street level, or for those of us willing to go the extra mile, from that secret rooftop or from that hill only accessible after a good bit of strenuous exercise. ⠀ Today's windows come from what I would think is a fairly typical private, middle-class residential development in Hong Kong, called Grand Waterfront. It is located near Kowloon City Pier, built at a time when the area was still a working class neighbourhood, but perhaps waiting for the inevitable gentrification that comes from its waterside location and the arrival of a subway (MTR) line next year. You can tell it is a private middle-class residential development thanks to the large-ish tinted windows and the presence of a modest balcony for each flat. To the locally-trained eye, there's also something about their design that gives it away, but it is harder to explain than I thought! ⠀ To take a perfectly geometrical shot, I should have visited during the day, but I think the lights that have been switched on in the early evening adds a human touch that compensates for it. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #residensity # artorvisuals # visual mobs #thecreatorclass#unknownperspectives#symmetricalmobs#symmetrica monsters #arquitecturamx creative architecture # skyscraping architecture #guardiancities#ig_shotz .
