WORLD ARCHITECTURAL HISTORY SURVEY EXAMPLES

Part II, Renaissance to Modern [return to part I]

For each example there are a handful of links directly to images, which open in a second window which it's best to keep at the left edge of your screen. You can also link from the building name directly to a second page focussed on just that building, with more images and links to pertinent external websites.

Some images feature a second link. In these cases, the first will go to a screen-sized image, the second to a much larger image. The number of the second link refers to the dimensions of the raw image (width x height) in pixels. Resolution and JPEG quality will vary, but are generally higher.

This project is still abuildin', and we'd be grateful for any constructive comments or contributions. Send them to jcohen@brynmawr.edu. See a partial list of sites or plans still needed.

Please be sure to check the copyright policy before using any of these images.
