Welcome to Architectus
Thanks to funding from Jisc this is an Open Educational Resource for both educational practitioners, lifelong learners and anyone with an interest in contemporary architecture, design and construction.
On the Search Pages you will discover high resolution original concept designs, drawings and other primary sourced materials relating to contemporary UK architecture, not just West Midlands related.
These have been sourced from many UK architectural practices and some of their significant architecture projects across the country.
You can also discover the prestigious, complete Archive of the Birmingham and Five Counties Architectural Association Trust at RIBA West Midlands.
This resource is still growing and will be maintained by Birmingham City University, the primary partner in the project. You can read more on the Blog about the project that has created this OER resource.
Why not check out the Learning packages. More will be developed during the academic year 2013/14 and are aimed not just at Higher Education Practitioners and Students.
All resources are available for download and re-use under a Creative Commons Attributable, Non-Commercial, Share Alike licence.
Enjoy this Open Educational resource.
