Kowloon Walled City: A place of anarchy

Kowloon Walled City, situated next to the old Hong Kong International Airport, was an incredible megablock of urban/architectural configuration occupying an area of approximately 200 by 150 metres. Most of the 500 buildings in the City, housing almost 50,000 residents, were built between 1965 and 1985. This March marks 20 years from their demolition.
