Chungking Mansions Hongkong
Project info

Chungking Mansions, a huge maze on 17 floors is a unique building in the heart of Hongkong where all kind of goods and services can be obtained, albeit on a low level when compared with the usual Hongkong malls. It contains an extraordinary array of people from throughout the world, from different societies and nationalities. Most of the people are there for business, such as African traders buying cheap mobile phones to sell them in their home countries, Indians having food stores or restaurants and other South-East Asians doing business. In the upper floors are many guesthouses, probably the smallest and cheapest in Hongkong, restaurants and also private apartments. It is said to be the most globalised building in the world, being, however, a „low-end globalisation“.
