Not only was Ernst a Haeckel of an artist, he was a brilliant biologist and naturalist as well.
Side note: I have business cards, for some unknown reason, and there’s a Haeckel illustration on the back of each one.
I have a book with these illustrations. Well worth the 30 bucks!

The Story of Kowloon Walled City | Via
The early phases of the Walled City were characterized by predictable building typologies and the buildings were constructed on the principle of squatters’ rights, with random construction on spots of available land by whoever got there first. Alleyways and passages evolved—unplanned—into the established ‘map’ of the city, which would remain until it came down. A basic electric supply existed, increasingly burdened by illegal connections that frequently overloaded the system, and the few standpipes supplied the only water. As the need to accommodate the ever growing residential and commercial populations forced it to in the 1960s, the building typology of the Walled City made the leap from two- to three-story residential structures to taller, six- to seven-story ones. This represented an important threshold, because at these greater heights the buildings unavoidably became more complex and required greater labor to realize, reinforced concrete, more investment, and so on.
Rabot Towers, an abandoned public housing project in Ghent, Belgium. When the first stage of demolition removed the building’s exterior walls, the former blight became an unexpected beauty. The three-tower complex once accommodated around 840 residents. However, with the building no longer fit for occupation and an overhaul deemed too expensive, the project is now slated for demolition.
