HK lab 2: an exploration of Hong Kong interior spaces
Laurent Gutierrez, Valérie Portefaix, Laura Ruggeri
Map Book Publishers, 2005 - Architecture - 331 pages
Picking up where HK LABleft off, HK LAB 2brings together artist projects and a number of theoretical and critical viewpoints on Hong Kong interior spaces. Conceived as a polycentric book, where a number of themes come together--private-public use, use-exchange, space-time, local-global, prescribed-interim use and control-deviation--the highly visual HK LAB 2deals with the changing nature of urban experience and inhabition. Expressed in extreme and spectacular ways, or in a gradual and less visible fashion, the acts of building, decorating, furnishing, using, transforming and repressing interiors shown here convey meanings about the reciprocal relationships between people and their spaces.
