'This publication explores the creative reuse of Kwun Tong industrial buildings by designers, artists and cultural workers. Industrial property prices have doubled in recent years due to problematic government policies regarding land use and "revitalization." The trend threatens a vibrant and wonderful community. Let's read closely on people who have already revitalized the factory area.' - from the front flap
