WHY ARCHITECTS NEED TO TRAVEL
Acclaimed architects such as Le Corbusier and Tadao Ando conducted journeys and profoundly shape their design philosophies and expressions. From Indonesia, Andra Matin is one of the architects that are known for frequent travelling trips. More than that, travel is considered to be an important element of Andra Matin’s practice.
We believe that the learning process for architecture is lifelong and requires more than an exploration in the realm of theory and design ideas. As much as travelling is often labelled as leisure activity, architects have much to benefit from their trained senses, embarking on voyages to seek profound, personal understanding.
