By Max Moya
At a point of doubt and anxiety about his architectural career, Max Moya decided to travel. He somehow traced and collapsed the Grand Tour with Corbusier’s travels, and added his own highlight destinations, which he expected could produce moments of epiphany. It was meant to be a true didactic trip - the resort of a student to the pressures of academia, but still a hard-minded enterprise at autodidactism. Moya toyed with the idea of becoming a tourist, a dilettante and bon-vivant, personnas which he at times struggled to keep. The book includes 16 selected writings from Moya’s trip plus a Prologue by Editor Thomas Patrick Kendall.
