In de 90-erjaren woonden er tussen de 33.000 en 50.000 in de wijk Kowloon Walled City, China, wat neerkomt op zo’n 3 miljoen bewoners op 3 vierkante kilometer!
Buildings were packed together so tightly in the Walled City that the alleys were nearly pitch-black in the day time. Electricity and water were brought in by illegal or informal means.
There was no garbage collection, so people pitched their trash out of their windows.
