A visit to Hamburg is a walk through the architectural history of the last 150 years. Here, few architecture that is older survived the storms; fire, epidemics, economic revolutions, war… Her population always scrambled back up, adapting the city to the new reality. Pulling down and building up, moving streets or if necessary entire neighbourhoods, cleaning up the debris, dreaming of a new city most beautiful.
Take this opportunity to get to know Japanese architecture, art and culture in a backpack-wise manner with other architecture enthusiasts. This original, chronological route starts in the ancient city of Kyoto, takes you along the artificial islands on the way to the metropolis of Tokyo.
The subject fits perfectly with the Japan Travel 2018 of Archipel.
Reason enough to organize a group visit to this ‘must see’ exhibition.
The mastery in Japan defies all imagination. Not only in the control of the architectural space, choice of materials and masterful detailing, but also in the surrender of knowledge.
We travel through the land of the rising sun for two weeks. A balanced architectural mix of contemporary, traditional and modern. But also culture, nature, art and … Japanese life is explicitly present.
