Architecture

Architecture fundamentally impacts a traveler’s experience of place, from where one eats, sleeps, waits for buses, trains, etc., to the overall architectural traditions that help give a certain place its feel.

Matador’s community has fans and students of various schools of architecture. Through their stories and photo essays, we hope to share our appreciation for architecture, and help travelers see architecture as be a point of entry into a place’s culture and history.
