Buildings in the 70s
There are still many buildings like these around. They may not be beautiful at the first sight, however, they reflect a lot about the culture here in Hong Kong. First, they were built with high utilitisation rates because of the land scarcity. Second, the buildings are usually with many windows, in fact, windows are arranged in a row to reduce the dependence on eletric lights. Although most of them are in a similar style, the buildings are usually very solid and robust.
