Bird’s-Eye View of Chai Wan Fire Station by Photographer Chan Dick


Hong Kong-based photographer Chan Dick stumbled upon the perfect vantage point: the ventilation window in the washroom at his workshop. From there he began following the roof-top activities and routines of the Chai Wan Fire Station. The resulting images are subtle and strangely satisfying. See more below.

Computer Generated “Kaleidome”


Currently on display at Shatin Park in Hong Kong, “Kaleidome” is a brightly coloured, stainless-steel structure that children can play on. Passersby can also gaze through it and see their surroundings reflected back in kaleidoscopic effect.

It isn’t just fun though. The installation was created by LAAB Architects using a highly sophisticated computer programming system that arranged all 262 laser-cut cells (of 22 unique shapes) into a formation that would allow for as little material and spatial consumption as possible. See more images of LAAB’s amazing design below!
