Join Australian architect and television presenter Peter Maddison for an architectural tour of Japan and earn CPD points at the same time.
Whether you’re an architect by profession, or simply a curious traveller, the 2017 tour has been specifically tailored around Maddison’s desire to experience a balance of heritage and contemporary Japanese architecture and culture.
“I’m looking forward to discovering first hand why Japan has had a huge influence on Mid Century architecture,” says Maddison.
“It was a rite of passage for the Mid Century modernist architects Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, Alvar Aalto, and many others, who all recognised the resonance of Japanese design. Extended roof lines, integrated landscape, sliding walls and visible craft in structure are clear design principles we take for granted in the West today.”
Taking you to the heart of urban and village Japanese culture (Tokyo, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Nagoya and the tranquil island of Naoshima), the tour will offer you the chance to visit projects from architects such as Tadao Ando, Kengo Kuma, and Super Potato.
This Study Tour has been accredited by the Australian Institute of Architects and will accrue 10 Informal CPD Points which is half the annual CPD requirement.
Japan 2017 with Peter Maddison will take place between 8 and 18 April. For further information and booking details click here.
