Exploring other worlds

Architects have always travelled. The traditional ‘Grand Tour’ is a famous example. Newly graduated or during their final years of study, young architects leave hearth and home for a few months. The destination is invariably a land from classical antiquity, Italy or Greece, the cradle of our culture. More exotic destinations are gradually becoming more popular. These foreign impressions are formative for one’s entire life. They lead to novel insights, to an enrichment of one’s own architectural culture, or even to a new architecture. And it does not stop at travelling alone. Dutch architects design buildings and even entire cities in foreign countries, and they participate enthusiastically in international discussion platforms. Meanwhile, more and more buildings in the Netherlands are being designed by foreign architects. Can we still talk of  international exchange if architecture itself is becoming globalised?
