Kowloon Walled City Theme Park

10:53 AM |

If you find yourself in Japan and you wander into the Kawasaki Warehouse you might think “Awesome! Someone finally built a Bladerunner theme park!” But it’s actually a meticulously detailed replica of Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong. The original was torn down in 1993 so, working from photographs, the artist recreated the facades in a warehouse outside of Tokyo. Signs and posters were handwritten and proofread by a Catonese speaker, then aged with a layer of dirt and grime. They even imported authentic Hong Kong trash to decorate with. Very cool.
