What we do
Incisive building studies
The AR scours the globe for the most significant buildings in the world, presenting them with beautiful photography, drawings and technical details. But what makes the AR’s building studies unrivalled is the insightful commentary they give you, including the history, the social impact and the reasons why certain choices were made.
It can be hard finding out how different architectural types have evolved over time, there’s a lot online but it’s not packaged into one collection. This is why in every issue of the Architectural Review we examine how wider changes are affecting particular building types and how to make them work for you.
The AR was founded in 1896, on the cusp of the 20th century. Throughout this time it has built an immense archive of influential buildings and historical reports which show you the long view of buildings once new and still standing.
Our outrage articles take 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.
We provide you with a curated selection of competitions, from radically challenging proposals to those that have the creative scope to test new ideas and make good architecture that will serve its use well for many years to come.
