Phaidon’s massive, encyclopedic surveys of design and architecture have been great resources on bookshelves of designers for years. The company recently went digital with all of their reams of information on contemporary architecture, with the beta version of the Phaidon Atlas: Architecture for Architects. Users can click through a global map, searching buildings and practices by location, or browse by building name or architect. Each building has a terrific project page, including images, a brief overview, construction shots, drawings and renderings, and categories it falls under like: Materials, Sustainability, Structure, Urban Density, and Building Type.
