Architecture & Design
Our architecture & design programs span the globe. We have within our team people who have a passion for, and deep knowledge, in architecture and design. Some of us have even led international contests of architecture or managed projects with renowned architects and designers in Europe, Asia and North America.
Landmark sites, iconic buildings and interiors
At DENEB, we are able to craft Architecture & Design programs that answer various purposes including leisurely discoveries, talks, study tours, workshops, and residencies.
Our program experiences are crafted with and led by local reputed or promising architects, designers, or architecture and design editors. Each tour is unique since it is customized for the intellectual and creative satisfaction of each client. We can also work with clients seeking a professional level of engagement beyond mere aesthetic enjoyment.
When designing an Architecture and Design Tour in a country, our work begins with an understanding of the evolution of both the historical and cultural context. In Japan, for example, we can take visitors to view the interior as well as exterior architecture. The survey can span time and space or can focus on a specific style or period: timeless Shinto shrines; thatched-roof farmhouses; Shinden and Sukiya aristocratic villas; samurai castles; tea houses; iconic buildings of the 20th and 21st century.
The topics covered, the experts involved and even the introductions we make are fitted to the needs and desires of the visitors. Our topics in the Land of the Rising Sun include:
The early influences from Korea and China
The Development of a cultural identity
The Way of the Samurai
The Edo Period – From villas and castle towns to theatres and Sumo rings
The Meiji era or the period of architectural transition
Modern architecture and design
Going deep also means encyclopedia-like knowledge on specific expertise. Based on the specific needs of the traveler or group of travelers (architecture and design firms…), we call upon specialists in our network such as urbanists, landscapers, and construction experts.
