Make sure your architecture firm is staying fresh and competitive by giving them access to the brightest ideas in the world. There’s a lot online, but it’s not edited or curated — looking for truly innovative design is like searching for a needle in a haystack.


As well as key buildings, the AR offers essential insight into all aspects of architecture:

  • Typology looks at how wider changes are affecting particular building types and how to make them work for you.
  • Revisits give you a glimpse into how different buildings around the world have been approached and if they do the right job.
  • Skill examines creative and cutting-edge expressions of technical innovation.
  • Outrage takes a closer look at architectural failures in planning legislation, of local authorities, of central government, of property developers, of speculative builders and, above all, of the architectural imagination.
  • The AR archive provides you with the long view of buildings once new and still standing.
