It includes photographs and architectural details for each building as well as links to information on the architects and a bibliography. The site enables users to view three-dimensional models of many of the buildings after downloading free viewing software. This is a commercial website and so many of the bibliographical entries link to items for sale by either Amazon or Artifice, but there is still a great deal of basic building information to be accessed here for free. The entire site is searchable by either simple or advanced methods and is easy to navigate" --"Best Free Reference Web Sites 2000."
