I don't discover anything new when I say Bangkok has an unique aesthetic. Many details define that style and I will not enter in deep here. Maybe I will do in another post because it deserves it.
Typography, use of reds, whites and dark blues together with tiny cubicles is signature of identity in bus stations. For me that's the feeling of starting a bus trip and happiness. And they expend real tickets! I mean, paper tickets with a few stamps on it.
Times change and now it's easy to see futuristic spaces everywhere. King Power desk in the airport is an example of spaceship design. Also uses reds, whites and blues but the result is cold. Only too clean workers and "office trained" people in the other side of the window. It doesn't provide me warm feeling or happiness at all.
I guess they expand boring machine tickets, ATM style.
