Jengaland" is the first book from the "All Things Bizarre" series which wrote by Young-Ha Kim. It is about the unbalance social system in Hong Kong, where overpopulation existed and people are focused to live in small apartments and spent an unexpected amount of money to rent a place to live. The inhumanity issue not just affects the architecture design in this island,  but also transferred the social environment here which people just focus on finding higher income to pay their housing issue.
