Chasing Density with @vdubl
For more photos of Hong Kong’s towering architecture, be sure to follow @vdubl on Instagram.
Hong Kong-based architect Vivien Wei Wei Liu (@vdubl) loves building design and mobile photography—two passions that come together in a powerful way through her Instagram images. “The design of buildings in Hong Kong is based on spatial scarcity; a struggle to house as many people on the smallest site possible,” explains Vivien. “The notion of living closely has a different connotation in what is one of the densest places in the world.”
Through her smartphone, Vivien captures the seemingly endless repetition and colorful patterns found in many of the city’s residential towers and deep urban canyons, where light barely reaches the street level. “My goal is to immerse the viewer into the space in which the photo was taken,” Vivien says.
Vivien, who helped organize a recent Instameet in Hong Kong, is also fascinated with the city’s stunning skyline. “One of the unique characteristics of Hong Kong is that in less than 20 minutes from the city, one can be immersed in lush greenery while enjoying spectacular views that juxtapose nature and the dense urban fabric.”

Spotlight Since launching, we’ve seen Instagram spread from our headquarters in the Bay Area to every corner of the globe. In this series we highlight top users from countries and cities with thriving Instagram communities.
Vancouver, British Columbia, is a city of contrasts. The myriad skyscrapers that support the area’s dense population sit in stark relief to the pristine bay and lush forests surrounding the city. And nods to the region’s diverse cultural heritage are apparent throughout the modern city—from public art to First Nations-inspired architecture.
Vancouver is also home to a thriving Instagram community with frequent InstaMeets and photo walks. Here are just a few Instagrammers sharing their city with the world:
