Here's a link to a site called Great Buildings (pretty generic). This site makes it easy to find famous, historical buildings. I use this website when I can't remember specifics about a given building. Each project included on the site has its own profile full of facts (ie. the building's architect, context, location, etc). Also included are paragraphs of descriptive information and sometimes quotes from the architects themselves. The search feature also proves helpful when researching individual architects. Just type their name and the site will list the architect's work. Another useful feature is the search by location. Need to find some old, French buildings? This site makes is simple. Enjoy!
