DAYS BEFORE DEMOLITION

For over 40 years, the Yen Chow Street Hawker Bazaar has been an important fabric supplier for the underground fashion scene. Its affordable price tags and organic maze-like stalls interiors encourage creativity and conversation. However balancing between cultural conservation and city development is always a challenge. In the name of solving the land shortage issue, the Bazaar is to be demolished to make way for building more public housings. With nowhere else to go, the hawker continue business as if everyday is their last day.
