I’ve always been a fan of Michael Wolf’s photographs of Hong Kong, but somehow I missed this series he did on corner houses in Hong Kong.

I remember when I was in Hong Kong last summer, I kept seeing these rounded corner buildings and I thought that they looked really weird but kinda neat. I guess there’s so many of them because the planning of the streets in Hong Kong aren’t necessarily hard corners like they are in Manhattan and some other more modern cities.

Anyway, it turns out that there’s quite a lot of these rounded corner houses/buildings and Michael Wolf has photographed a good number of them in his series. Check it out if you’ve got some time. I really should take this downtime in my career to plan a trip back to Hong Kong. I wasn’t there nearly as long as I wanted to be last summer.
