Good news! HKAC is planning our second Archi-Trip to Iran from 23 February to 4 March 2019.
Our previous Archi-Trip to Iran in April 2018 was an amazing and inspirational journey. We have visited not only its historical Architecture, but also the contemporary Iranian Architecture and meeting with the local Architects.
Un-covering the black veil, we have discovered the amazement of mathematics and sciences in Iranian Architecture and its beautiful people. It was indeed an unforgettable experience and much to learn from.
Next February, we will set foot in Iran again and continue our journey to explore the beauty of Iranian architecture and people! We will meet with the local Iranian architects who will share with us the Iranian Architecture; we will also walk into Iranian homes to explore more about Iran people and culture.
Architect Corrin Chan will join the trip too. Don’t miss it out!
