Enakan di Indonesia, baru sadar gue. Yang penting, temen-temen gue disini, dari lahir gue disini, gue make tanahnya, minum airnya, masa gue ga ada terima kasihnya? Lebih baik disini, rumah kita sendiri… —5 cm. 

You do not feel comfortable with yourself at all and you might often feel lost. You are trying to sort yourself out and you do not have the answers to your questions —The Egogram, mine

A dense urban fabric layered over towering mountains defines Hong Kong, a region that boasts over 280 islands and 500 miles of coastline. The city layers Chinese, colonial and contemporary architecture, all wrapped up in piles of transportation and communication networks concentrated in Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. Major traffic arteries permeate core urban areas, pedestrian walkways overlap in elevations, and most residents share living spaces that are well below the average size of residences in neighboring Shenzhen, China. And as retail centers continue to replace public squares, the city’s growing density seems to be redefining public-private spatial relationships.

The NYC satellite office for Portland based Wieden + Kennedy boasts a 50,000 square-foot space, stairs that double as bleacher seating, and sunset views of the Hudson. In addition to the various conference rooms, there’s an unusual alfresco meeting spot. It’s a “park,” a double-height corner space with blueberry bushes growing and glazing removed from the windows. (A glass front maintains climate control elsewhere.) Good times continue in the “gym,” dedicated to the sports of Ping-Pong and foosball, and at the freeform bar, where draft beer flows. Heineken, it turns out, is an agency client.
