"City of Anarchy": A high resolution schematic of Kowloon Walled City by Adolfo Arranz for SCMP

It uses information and from "The Darkness City: Life in Kownloon Walled City" by Greg Girard and Ian Lambot as well as the Leisure and Cultural Services Department of Hong Kong

This location was the origin of many tropes

Higher resolution version is available here:

@cypnk interesting, because this tv report doesn't romantically idealise the situation of the people who lived there, unlike the info image in the first toot (which i had seen before)

@ente @cypnk all although I'd doubt the objective approach of a documentary which uncritically features a woman "healing" drug addicts from their addiction with prayer and spirituality.

anyway, very interesting stuff. and cyberpunk is always ambiguous about romantics and misery....

@ente That’s why I included it here. I felt it was important to see the outside and inside perspective
