Under our noses and invisible to our eyes, there are places that we cannot enter, or from where we cannot escape. The city is a maze of social, economic and political boundaries that both unify and separate us. At a time when Hong Kong's wealth gap is widening, 1 in 5 people are now living below the poverty line; a family of four live in a house of 150 sqft. In the flow of labour, capital and time, inadequate housing is a reflection of our society. These families live in the hope of moving to public housing, but in this market-led city, will the supply of such inadequate housing ever cease?
