"Architecture has always been learned by traveling."
'Virtual Grand Tours', An alternative for the XXI Century
Unfortunately current conditions restrict our freedom. Among many other things, something as simple as traveling from one place to another has become almost impossible, at least challenging.
At the same time, the conditions open the opportunity to invest time and energy in what we are really curious and passionate about. It seems to be the right time to open up to new and unexpected experiences.
This course offers an alternative learning adventure that combines travel, theory and practice. The aim is to continue with a disciplinary tradition of learning architecture through traveling. And at the same time it creates a practical way to apply the knowledge in our individual design process.
We cannot anticipate the future scenario of the current situation, but meanwhile, let's continue learning by traveling and learning by doing!
About the course
The understanding and the recovery of the tradition of learning traveling on architecture make this course unique. We invite you to experience a repertory of buildings and atmospheres as materialized lessons, reflecting on ways and means by which they were made. In parallel, you will explore how to apply the new knowledge to an architectural project.
The course will not offer recipes or copy-paste solutions, but principles for the design of spaces and buildings with a strong sense of atmosphere.
The course is composed of 2 seminars per week:
1. Study Trip

ABOUT THE TEACHER
I am Matias Grimaldi. Founder of ‘Deep Reading Architecture’. Our learning experiences are born from two personal passions: Travel and Architecture.
For more than five years, I have been traveling through Europe experiencing buildings with special atmospheric qualities, exploring how to learn from them, and applying the knowledge to personal design processes.
We believe that all this has no sense if we do not share it and support other people on a similar pathway. If you are one of them, we hope you join our online adventures and enjoy them as much as we do while creating them.
Big hug and see you soon!
