"To visit is to learn" is the mission behind HouseArch. In order to enhance the exchange of information of architecture and space design between Taiwan and Japan, local visits are conducted by inviting architects, designers to share their design concepts. The company also holds annual field trips, taking Taiwanese architects, interior designers and professionals in the field to Japan, and encourage the mutual understanding and possibility of collaborations through conversations. The trips are documented and later posted, published via digital media or widely distributed as e-books.

Evaluation

This is a new medium to communicate Japan''s architecture to Taiwan. It is innovative because it does not simply explain architecture but provides information on the ideas and methods behind the architecture through lectures, tours, etc. It also looks to foster exchanges through Taiwanese and Japanese design using numerous activities including publications and exhibitions. One can probably also view this as one form of cultural exchange.
