Young Architect Travelogue Photos and Sketches: Doorways, Gateways, Corridors, and the Next Destination

If “Even a journey of 1,000 miles must begin with one step,” is a cliché shared by hack self-help and travel writers alike, perhaps a less hoary (and less profound) truism is that to get anywhere, you have to open a door, cross a threshold, transverse a corridor. The architects highlighted in the Young Architects Forum’s latest issue of Connection understand this well. Their travelogue photographs and sketches feature locales familiar and exotic, collected with a special eye towards the narrow interstitial spaces that take you from one discrete location to another. There are doorways humble and exalted, courtyard gateways, and urban canyons both a few years and hundreds of years old. The (transparent and opaque) corridors work in many different ways, giving their respective image a center of visual gravity, framing views, and helping preserve the mystery of travel.
