    Post Kowloon Walled City.....

    Kowloon Walled City was an enclave in Hong Kong that came about through diplomatic disputes between Great Britain and China (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kowloon_Walled_City). For much of its existence, the city was not clearly claimed or ruled by either government, leading to a space in which there were no planning or zoning laws and little to no regulation. Demolished in the early 90's due to concerns about sanitation and crime, the City was a densely packed multistory hive with narrow twisting walkways and with large sections of its lower levels never receiving any sunlight.

    A Japanese team was able to document the city before its demolition and do an amazing cross section of it: http://www.deconcrete.org/wp-content...ection-low.jpg

    My only complaint would be the inadequate representation of kung fu fighting.
