NEW Database Resources
OnArchitecture, produced by Diego Grass and out of Chile, is an online audiovisual service addressing critical thinking about architecture. It provides a global perspective of the discipline and an innovative way for faculty to add new content to their lectures.
OnArchitecture’s collection features original videos, such as interviews, buildings and installations, with a selection of complementary material–documents and audiovisuals–about the main authors and figures of contemporary architecture.
A subscription to this title will be purchased in July.
