All the behind scenes details from this #Architecture2020 shot.

Agora’s mission is to potentiate the best point of views from all around the world. To do this, we believe it is important for Humanity to share both the photo and the story behind the making of it.

Today be fascinated by Kent Sampson’s tales of adventure through the streets of Hong Kong leading to his #Architecture2020 shot that made it to the Top 5 of this Contest.

Title: Close Quarters

Location: Quarry Bay, Hong Kong

Camera equipment: Nikon D3400, 18-300mm f/3.5 – 6.3


“Dense is the word I’d use to describe Hong Kong’s architecture. Its skyline, bustling streets, night-markets… all so incredibly dense. It’s a beautiful display of contemporary architecture where both modern and functionalist approaches juxtapose each other. While Hong Kong’s sci-fi-like cityscape is a spectacle to behold (especially during ‘A Symphony of Lights’), it’s the older, grittier, and seemingly never-ending look of its apartment blocks that really drew my attention.

These older, functionalist style buildings can be found all around the city; however, it’s perhaps best found in the Quarry Bay area. I spent a couple of hours getting lost in this part of the city, getting carried away with the different colors and patterns of all the various buildings. For me, no other picture I took sums up Hong Kong as a city better than this one.”
