Stumble Into Indonesia's Unseen Places
As I strolled down the old part of Bandung city a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this nostalgic view. No, I didn’t live in the 1930s, but this Savoy Homann Hotel was built in that decade. It’s one of the many remaining Art Deco buildings in Bandung, designed by a Dutch architect Albert Aalbers, located on Jalan Asia Afrika.
I remember about 12 years ago, my college mates and I were sitting on the sidewalk, drawing this building as a part of our Drawing class assignments. What?! 12 years ago?? Oh geez, time reeaally flies.
Bandung is said to have one of the most largest collections of Art Deco buildings in the world!
