I like brickwork. It’s warm and human. It emanates from the soil itself. I’m so tired of buildings that are just acres of concrete, steel and glass. They make you feel cold and deracinated. They drain the energy and life out of you.
I’m here at Jakarta’s T2 Soekarno-Hatta. It’s an older facility but it works (there’s also a lot of natural light) and every time I land or depart from here I feel a certain lightness in my step.
