It offers a deep and detailed panorama of the world’s main authors, works, experiences, and issues related to the field of architecture, urban design and the built environment.

This database is available as a subscription service for architecture schools, libraries, and cultural institutions at www.onarchitecture.com.

OnArchitecture displays the oral and built history of architecture of the late XX century and early XXI century, with a strong emphasis on contemporary architecture in (South and North) America, Europe, and Asia. A direct contribution to academics, updating their knowledge, and boosting their educative practice -both online and in classes- dynamizing their methodological and pedagogical resources.
Librarians have found OnArchitecture to be a collection, which can be accessed from any location and device -simultaneously and unlimitedly, something fundamental since pandemics-, in which users can be administrated into various types of groups with real-time usage statistics.
Students have found OnArchitecture to be a catalyst for their initiative, self-learning, critical thinking, and global perspective of the discipline; thus contributing to form better architects -who will eventually make better architecture-.
