|Juxtaposed in Jakarta,
stands old and new, Eastern
Asian and Modern
Western, traditional and current, rich and poor.
Within the city lays a great contrast between
Western-style modern skyscrapers and traditional Indonesian
culture. The skyline is a good representation of the city.
It lacks any kind of real centralized or linear pattern, but
does have some key blocks of skyscapers that do represent
the central business core. During the day one can see these
buildings are mostly white in colour and are very easy on
the eyes with a blue sky backdrop. At night, they turn into
a gala of neon lights representing the energetic and erratic
pace of this mega-metropolis.
