Asian Architecture – Introduction
We cover architectural visits to Beijing, Shanghai, New Delhi, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
Recent cities in Asia to gain an architectural tour are Bangkok, Istanbul, Hong Kong and Singapore.
The continent is bouyant and with this economic power comes interesting architecture. The countries with the widest range of fascinating new buildings are China, Japan, India, South Korea and Singapore.
We also include Australia on this page despite not being in Asia! Many of the cities – such as Hong Kong – are primarily known in architectural terms for their skyscrapers, though cities like Beijing and Singapore are developing a strong group of cultural buildings such as museums and art galleries. Many of the architects for the most important buildings are from the West, in partnership with local architects, but no doubt this will change over time as the economies mature.

Asian Architectural Walking Tours
Asian Architectural Tours are able to focus on contemporary or traditional buildings in the city, or both. The Architecture Tour is usually a general introduction to the city’s highlights – the main, well known buildings – but it can be structured around your group’s specific architectural interests. We can also arrange a bus tour for some Asian cities. Your walking tour in Asia can be tailored to suit you, for example a group of architects with an interest in new residential buildings could be assisted in preparing an itinerary ahead of their visit.
