James Law, along renown global names in architecture including Herzog De Meuron, Thomas Hetherwick, Todd Williams Billy Tsien, Daniel Liberskind, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Rocco Yim, KPF, Aedas, has had his project, OPod Tube House, be named as one of twelve best architecture of the decade in Hong Kong by Hong Kong Tatler.
 
“Hong Kong architect James Law’s ingenious concept transforms 2.5m-wide concrete water pipes into temporary living spaces with living, cooking and bathing facilities. The tubes, which have a Smartphone-operated locking system, can easily be relocated by crane and stacked on top of each other in unused urban spaces between buildings.This is inspirational architecture at its best and a serious attempt, despite its playful appearance, to address the pressing shortage of housing in Hong Kong.”
