Monocle: Asia Pac Unwrapped #8

June 2015

Anchored by Monocle’s unrivalled team of editors and correspondents, and produced out of our bureaux in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore, Asia Pac Unwrapped is an unmissable weekly briefing from the world’s most dynamic region.

June 22:

We’re traveling to the mountainous Indonesian city of Bandung to discuss architecture. In Tokyo, Kenji Hall ditches the bug spray in favour of luxury camping (or "glamping"), and Brisbane architects Ingrid Richards and Adrian Spence continue the theme as they pop into Midori House to give us their take on renewal in the world of urban design.
