Wow, what a trip. The Expedition team are back in the office this Monday slightly more cultured, educated and inspired (if a little fatigued) following the 4-day “Grand” Tour of Southern Europe. Joining up with the sister companies of the Useful Simple Trust, the whole team embarked upon a trip which took in the sights of Turin, Milan and Athens. Architecture and structure were high on the agenda, with Expedition designed structures experienced along the way, including the elegant Intesa SanPaolo Tower in Turin and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center in Athens – a 21st Century monument which will be a significant public facility for the people of Athens and Greece. Watch this space for further reflection and thought pieces on the trip.
