The AJ Buildings Library is a digital database that showcases more than 1,000 exemplar projects, most from the last 20 years but including major projects back to 1900, which is now available to all AJ subscribers as part of their subscription.
Architects can search for projects by age, cost, architect, building type, footprint, location, and a combination of these. For instance ‘School built for less than £10m’ or ‘Offices between 1,000m² and 5,000m² from the last ten years’.
Each project featured in this digital database includes full project data (more than 20 items of information) and comprehensive architectural photographs and drawings (plans, elevation, section) – all provided at high resolution.
Drawings can be downloaded and printed out to their original scale. NB Vector pdfs and CAD files are not available for download and all copyrighted images are protected.
A dedicated Buildings Library Editor requests and publishes dozens of new projects every month, as well as pulling classic schemes from the AJ archives.
