Archivision is a database of over 80,000 high quality, professionally photographed images of architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, archaeology, and design. It covers significant Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, 18th and 19th Century, Islamic and Modern and contemporary sites. The contemporary sites include structures in the Olympic Village in Beijing, as well in major cities in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. Archivision highlights the work of architectural forerunners such as Louis Kahn and Le Corbusier. The database also features images from gardens, parks, cityscapes, works of public art and industrial design.
