where it never rains

WMA Opportunity, Hong Kong, 2019

Every day thousands of people are constantly forced through an archipelago of privately owned properties, shopping centres and transportation hubs, mutually interconnected by a maze of underground tunnels and covered footbridges.
In the Mall-Densest city the Mall offers an unlimited source of opportunities. This is a place where people socialise, build a sense of community and, during the hot summer months, have a breath of fresh air.
We could live our entire life without ever having to leave these modern fortresses; the basic units of Hong Kong contemporary urbanism, and perhaps a glimpse into the futuristic city.
The Mall offers the same opportunities of the more traditional public square; a contemporary agora where interconnections are made but where, inevitably, it will never rain.
