some architectural facts

europe and japan are home to some of the world’s best architectural works. read on to know some of the lesser known architectural facts about europe and japan.

  • revivalism was a hallmark of nineteenth-century european architecture.
  • art nouveau architecture was a reaction against the eclectic styles which dominated european architecture in the second half of the 19th century.
  • a distinctly japanese style of architecture was developed in the late heian period (898–1185).

i am an architecture student, and dtours came as a matter of luck to me. not even once did regret giving up on my semester exams for the japan dtours. i came back with a treasure trove of knowledge and some very good new friends! i can never get over the experience.

I now truly believe that if someone visits better places, he may learn to improve his own, and if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it.

this was my first experience for an international design travel. After having travelled extensively before, i realized how life-changing it is- to travel with design enthusiasts, and to push your limits each day. the long walks, the little cook-outs, design discussions and every part of the tour cannot be justified through words. definitely travelling with dtours again!

it was a beautiful experience to travel all the way to south korea and japan with colleagues and acquaintances and most importantly your own self. the best part was that people from different walks of life had joined us and we stayed together day and night. design discussions, last moment plans, workshops, cycling and much more. the trip was a lifetime experience for me in all respects. i would like to thank dtours for giving me this opportunity.

when i think about dtour, it will forever be hooked on  to the long-lasting memories that i’ve made on this fantastic trip & it was a perfect opportunity for me to visit many amazing buildings / museums, learn about a different culture and fit in a bit of sightseeing. on the top of all this, i got to do it with my colleagues.
