New Resource Alert: Architecture Database DETAIL Inspiration
The Library and School of Architecture and Design (SoAD) are excited to provide access to DETAIL Inspiration. This resource offers an extensive collection of over 4,000 building project documentations, spanning 35 years from DETAIL magazine. It encompasses key articles from various editions of DETAIL magazine, including DETAIL: Green, DETAIL: Inside, and DETAIL: Structure.
While DETAIL Inspiration is not a substitute for the Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals, its selective and up-to-date content, along with its easy-to-use interface and wide international coverage, makes it a vital tool for research in architectural design.
Users can easily search the database using filters such as building type, construction method, material, location, or year of construction. Each project entry includes detailed documents available for download in PDF format.
