【Stories behind the pins】Monster Building
Hong Kong has a highly dense population, and most people live in high-rise buildings. The “Monster Building” in Quarry Bay which is composed of five interconnected buildings, exemplifies this typical characteristic of Hong Kong housing. The building was established in 1972 and provides over 2,000 residential units for tens of thousands of people. Standing between the two large atriums of the building and looking up, the massive and uneven exterior and densely packed units attract tourists and photography enthusiasts alike.
In the past, many movies including the Hollywood film “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” have been shot here, bringing the Monster Building to the cinema screen multiple times, creating the impression of a “concrete jungle” in Hong Kong.
