Have you ever stopped to admire a beautiful old building? How about one that was just very distinctive? If you’ve ever wondered “who built that” or “what style is that” when looking at architecture, then Architecture Week’s Great Buildings Collection is for you.
The Great Buildings Collection is a fully searchable and browser friendly database of architecture from throughout history and around the world. Full of images and information, the Great Buildings Collection is perfect for the casual architecture fan, the aspiring art student or engineer, or future draftsmen (and woman) and architects.
You can use the Great Buildings Collection in many different class settings as well. In addition to reproducing the buildings in an engineering or art class, you could take virtual field trips through history and literature, or even examine how the politics and social norms of the time may have affected the architecture. Either way, if you are anything like me you’ll get lost browsing the Great Buildings Collection for hours!
