From public housing in Hong Kong to public housing estates in France... Michelle's architectural pilgrimage (08 Nov 2007)


Michelle grew up as a typical young rebel in a public housing estate in Hong Kong. Surprising her parents and perhaps even herself, she snapped out of her delinquent ways and became an architect, and an unusually sensitive one at that. When Michelle finds that life is less than satisfactory, she tries to refresh herself with a trip to the Unite d'Habitation in Marseille of France, the signature project of the late modernist architect Le Corbusier. When Michelle, who is about to get married, visits a single-parent family in France, many thoughts pop up in her head.
