Four 40 Under 40 laureates describe how travel inspires them

Four 40 Under 40 laureates describe how travel inspires them

From underground museums in Naoshima and wooden furniture in Ko Samui to multicultural Istanbul, where the east meets the west, and the respect Japanese have for the environment and landscape, four of our newly-crowned 40 Under 40 2015 winners describe how their recent travel experiences have inspired them

Travel is a source of inspiration for many — as Pritzker laureate Shigeru Ban once said, “Travel is the most important education for architects… [they should] go to different countries and different places to see different architecture and different cultural landscapes.”

We recently spoke to four of Perspective‘s 40 Under 40 2015 winners — Magic Kwan from Kengo Kuma & Associates, Patricia Ho from White Jacket, Eric Tong from Eravolution and Rick Lam from Architecture Commons — on how their recent travel experiences have inspired them.

Check out the video below:
