From the website: “This database includes information over more than¬†44000¬†built and unrealized projects from various architects and planners. The architecture of the 20th century is the main theme of this database.

It’s possible to look for a special project via an architect, town or keyword with the indices or by using a query form. For most entries you get the name, address, keywords and information about further literature. Some entries include images, comments, links to other Websites or internal links.”

World Architecture Community

www.worldarchitecture.org/main/

From the Scout Report: “The World Architecture Community website is the genuine article, and even a cursory look reveals that people are posting items to this site from Bangalore to Buffalo. New users can go to the left-hand side of the site to register, and then they can look through the various architectural directories, which include architects, buildings, critics, and theorists. In the buildings area, the buildings available for consideration are divided into more detailed thematic categories, including ‘Work Places’, ‘Public Buildings’, and ‘Public Infrastructure’. Moving on, the site also includes an excellent section dedicated to ‘Theory and Issues’. Here visitors can read about sustainable development, semiotics, design, and urban issues. All told, this site is a tremendous resource for architects, urban planners, and students of cities in general.”
