A close and meaningful relationship is always seen between architecture and travel. As architecture is a part of our natural environment, it is difficult to overlook it, particularly assuming that it has recorded historical, social, cultural, and artistic values. Traveling has always played a vital role in architectural education.
The tour is planned with the motive of architectural learning. The students find fun in the small curves of the orders and the interaction between local people and in their live sketching and documentation.
This is why the COA guidelines for education have mentioned it as an important part of the curriculum in its section 5, which states that study tours shall be a part of the program and should be conducted every year, explaining that it helps to consolidate course contents by acquainting students not only with professional practice but also with the culture and context of the region.
