Building Types Online draws on the expertise and the high international standing of Birkhauser manuals in typological order. Building Types Online is the leading tool for the study and practice of architectural design. Perfect for students and researchers in architecture and civil engineering, it provides exclusive, highly flexible access to the prestigious Birkhäuser portfolio on building types. The approx. 1000 case studies are documented with texts by authors who are experts in their fields and with approx. 5000 architectural drawings of high quality as well as 2000 photographs of the buildings. Using a systematic and analytical search and browse structure that allows all kinds of combinations, the database provides solutions for numerous design tasks in study and practice. This tool will facilitate research on building typology and architectural design assignments. Thematic articles provide background information on individual building types or explain specific aspects such as lighting, acoustics, urban considerations, access types or planning processes.
