Hong Kong has one of the lowest crime rates in the world and is one
of the most prosperous societies , but much of the population lives
in low quality, high-density housing. Through qualitative
interviews with long-term residents of public housing, this book
explores residents' experience of high-density space. It traces the
development of Hong Kong housing forms and analyses how people's
expectations of domestic space have been affected by social
mobility and shifting cultural values of space, lifestyle, and
design. The accompanying award-winning documentary film, A Thousand
Pieces of Gold, will enable readers to experience these spaces and
listen to revealing interviews with the tenants.
