Birkhauser’s full text database, Building Types Online, showcases content from across 12 of its leading publications (2002-16), covering for example: houses, offices, schools, libraries, sacred and industrial buildings. We have free, full-text trial access until 31 May 2016.
You can search or browse 850+ building case studies from around the world and around 120 thematic articles. Case studies include drawings and photographs, often with highly detailed vector-based plans.
There is a guide containing more detail and search tips. Your feedback on this resource will be essential to determining the value of this resource, particularly when compared with existing building project resources for Architecture & Civil Engineering such as Detail Inspiration and Architects’ Journal Buildings Library. You can access these databases including trial content via links from the Library’s Subject web page for ACE.
