Geraldine Borio and Caroline Wuthrich have been living and working in Hong Kong since 2008 and 2010 respectively. With their architectural research firm Parallel Lab they investigate various forms of occupancy of urban space in many different contexts around the world. Their socio-architectural research projects are meant to enhance the importance and chances of local bottomup strategies. One of their recent projects is a study on micro-level urban life in Hong Kong, investigating the use of the narrow lanes running between the extremely densely built city's high-rise buildings. These service lanes and passages offer space for a variety of small trades and businesses. Their semi-public space allows for different social interaction and informal encounters governed by other, equally informal, rules than the city as a whole. Hong Kong in Between is a very attractive, nearly artistic presentation of Borio and Wuthrich's findings. In black-and-white drawings, diagrams and plans, colour and black-and-white photographs, and texts they show how people in Hong Kong occupy the city's in-between-spaces. The book also documents the playful social interventions and experiments the two architects-researchers carried out within their project.
