American Architecture Walking Tours - Introduction
e-architect has been operating Architecture Walking Tours since 2001.
Adrian Welch and Isabelle Lomholt - directors of e-architect - both trained as architects. We realised some cities only had architecture tour guides that focused on the historical buildings. Over the years we've discovered thousands of people who wished to see the key contemporary American buildings, within the historic context.
e-architect operate both architecture walking tours and architectural bus tours in America. Our American tour guides all have an architectural background and many of them are also architects. Each city offered in America has a standard tour framework but many of our Clients request tailored programmes.
We are more than happy to accommodate your needs and interests for your American architecture tour.

Walking Tours in America - Contemporary, Traditional or Both
American Architectural Tours can focus on contemporary buildings, traditional buildings, or both. The Architecture Tour can be an introduction to the city's main buildings or can be tailored to your group's architectural interests. For some American cities we can also arrange a bus tour.

e-architect have set tour programmes that aim to show the key buildings in a city. The American walking tour can be tailored if sufficient notice is provided. For example a group of architects interested in innovative social housing or new American office buildings could be provided with tailored information allowing a tour programme to be agreed prior to their visit.

Architectural Tours - arranged by country
We have numerous positive referrals for a range of cities, please contact Isabelle for details. Typically tours are for groups of architects from a specific design studio or from a specific architectural association or institution. We have arranged tours for individuals and couples but please note our prices are not per person. Our American tour guides are paid by the hour so the more people on the tour the lower the individual price if paying jointly (most tours are paid by the office, association or institution).
