‘Portraits from Above' is both a book and exhibition project documenting Hong Kong's legacy of rooftop communities as a highly unique form of architecture that has informally evolved. The project offers a comprehensive survey of five rooftop settlements in the city, while also revealing the creative cultural energy of these rooftop communities and their inextricable links to local neighbourhood and social networks. Alongside some 90 axonometric drawings and analytical diagrams, the publication also includes detailed interior and exterior photographs of more than twenty households and a collections of rooftop resident's stories.
