Portraying the growth of the building industry, this image series is showcased in a palette of chromatic color hues that bring. This filtering technique brings attention to the array of linear patterns created by these modern buildings.

The Finnish artist photographs Hong Kong's urban landscape and shines a light on the vast number of the city's apartment buildings, sky scrapers and office towers.

Creating a visually bold linear pattern, these building facades blend into a geometric composition that is both multi-dimensional and artfully abstract. This series of architectural photographs captures a busy city's silence and ambiguity that is seen through the eyes of talented artist Miemo Penttinen.
