Hong Kong may be the most vertically-inclined city in the world, with over 7 million residents clustered into 426 square miles. No one has ever captured this vertical density quite so well as French photographer Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze, who took the following images for his new book, Vertical Horizon.

Nestled right in the middle of Copenhagen lies Christiania, a “freetown” with its own set of rules, its own currency, and its own eccentric brand of architecture. The officials of Copenhagen tolerate the little city within a city, despite the tendency of residents to completely ignore state regulations and policies.
Some 1000 people live in Christiania and have created their own little utopia of tiny, hand-built residences, cafes, and private business. There is a dark side however; some businesses openly illegally sell pot, hash, and other soft drugs. It is this complete disregard for federal laws that antagonizes city officials. What do you think, is the freetown of Christiania an idyllic refuge or a hotbed for aspiring rebels?
