There are only a few photos on this page, but they are really phenomenal: apartments in Shanghai.
Living spaces — real ones, not the Dwell-worthy — are so interesting. Anybody know of any projects to document and share them?
Check out Michael Wolf’s series 100×100, 100 photos of 100 sq. ft. Hong Kong apartments.
OT, started by Kottke: ToastyKen and I went to go see an exhibition of Wolf photos about two years ago, in SF–they were overwhelmingly large and detailed and repetitious. It felt a bit voyeuristic because of the high resolution. Most of it was overwhelmingly rectangular and regular, but there were some standout beautiful buildings–lovely colors, dynamic architecture, trees incorporated. I was amused that the photos of those had sold first–as if Wolf was being rewarded for finally finding an inspiring building, and punished for all the rest of the reality.
These Shanghai apartments are an amazing link, btw!
A good friend of mine Marc Shoul (photographer), did a project for Benetton Colors on slums, showing inventive uses of small spaces:
On side note, Colors has great magazine articles:
