Hong Kong is a fascinating place that has historically been known for its strong economic power. With a land area of 426 square miles and a population of seven million people, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated areas in the world.

In total there are 6588 high-rise buildings in Hong Kong, surpassing New York’s 5818 buildings, making Hong Kong a true skyscraper city. Many people live, work and play in high-rise buildings scattered across the country. Here we bring you the work of german photographer Michael Wolf, who’s created a series of the photographs called Architecture of Density.
