Tour builds us up. Since architecture comes to be understood when it is holistically experienced on site, tour is regarded as indispensable to architects. Le Corbusier, a master of Modern Architecture, was not an exception. In his age of 24, Corbusier launched out on a long voyage over half a year. We can easily understand, from his book 'Voyage to the Orient', how many things he had obtained from tours. --- Ando Tadao, in his book 'I Dream in Architecture' (NHK, 2000)
