Hong Kong's human battery hens: Claustrophobic images show how slum families squeeze their lives into the tiniest apartments

Yet these depressingly cramped spaces serve as a kitchen, living room, dining room, bedroom, pantry and everything in between for their cooped-up inhabitants. Those unfortunate enough to live in these urban slums range from the elderly and unemployed to low-income families and singletons. Their location? Like battery hens: A family of four tries to get on with everyday life despite living in a room where there is barely space to move in the urban slums of Hong Kong Pile it high: A woman sits in the only available space in her room.

Photographs by Andreas Romagnoli MIES van der Rohe’s Villa Tugendhat retains it's revolutionary purity and cutting-edge style even after nearly a century of minimalist design. The architect's famous less is more dictum is fully evinced in the functional design of the house. Completed in 1930, the sleek building strikes a perfect balance between the rigorous Rationalists and the Bauhaus school mixed with a starkly dynamic Central European aesthetic.

The villa combines that alchemy of art, philosophy and architecture that was key to the early Modernist movement. Choice Cut Or Mystery Meat? A Guide To Mexican Butcher Shops: Part I - Beef : Mexico Cuisine. Online Tengwar Transcriber. Bucolismo. El bucolismo ensalza las bellezas de la vida rural.
