If you don't know what to look for with Art Deco, you could easily walk by this building and assume its just another slightly rundown modern office construction. That means unless you are a fan of Art Deco or architecture in general, its not going to be anything special. But its still worth stopping at for pictures (now that you... More

The former DENIS Bank building is a displaced anomaly, a futuristic building transported back in time via dimensional rip to colonial Indonesia where it has remained relatively unknown by the wider world community.

Who would ever choose a bank to visit in a trip? That’s us! This buidling is amazing with unique architecture and the building system. This place is a must see if you’re in Bandung. There are also some more marvelous old buildings in this town but not opened for excursion because they are redidents or business office.

Bandung has an outstanding collection of art-deco buildings from the 1920's and 1930's. A walking tour of the main structures may well prove to be the highlight of a trip to this city. For the fan of modern architecture the former Denis Bank Building is one of the city's must-see structures. The building was designed by renowned Dutch arcitect, Albert... More
