Curated Design and Architectural Travel
It is my pleasure and honour to write a piece for this publication, that has carefully selected Studio Archohm’s initiative of Dtours India – illustrating the intense travel experience of architects and designers of Archohm and their guests.
While our world is getting smaller and smaller and it seems there are no more places to discover, the human urge to explore unique experiences and to develop themselves as individuals continuously grows and grows. Imagine the increased quality of life when everyone would have the same chances of discovering architecture and developing themselves through travel.
And with travel, I am not referring to an extensive browse experience. Especially when it comes to finding architectural objects, it might be tempting to content ourselves with a virtual journey in search for inspiration. This may be helpful in some occasions, in studies for instance, or when you are dying to find out about a building on the other side of the globe and you don’t have the option to visit it; but eventually you need to visit the project, because the final personal judgement can only be made after seeing a building or site with your own eyes, and the real- life experience doesn’t match up with the online equivalent.
