The OPod is Hong Kong’s New Housing Solution
Hong Kong is the world’s most expensive city for real estate for the last seven years.
According to the 2017 Demographia International Housing Affordability Survey, here’s why:
- rising population
- high demand for accommodation
- skyrocketing property prices
- land limited by the city – all these will likely keep the prices sky high for some time.
Many of Hong Kong’s citizens live in squalid conditions or partition dwellings due to the lack of suitable homes available.
As such, local architect, James Law, designed a new micro-home he believes could help the city’s housing crisis and the OPod is an inexpensive alternative.
