The good people at the Great Buildings Collection also publish ArchitectureWeek, and this site provides photographs and essays on thousands of renowned buildings around the world. There are several main sections here, and they include "Buildings", "Architects", and "Places". Each entry includes information about the architect, the date of construction, building type, construction system, and style. The real novel feature is that many of the buildings also have a 3D model that allows visitors to get a sense of the building's different forms, shapes, and context. While there are many highlights here, first-time visitors might start by looking at the entries for the Brooklyn Bridge, the Case Study homes in Southern California, or the Seattle Public Library. The site also contains a timeline of architects from 1400 to the present.
