Travel to any place in the world and this guide will tell you, where the most interesting buildings around you are located. It will tell the story behind the building and the architect, displays two pictures for every project and gives you walking or driving directions.
No data connection is needed, because all information and pictures (except maps) are stored offline on your phone. So no expensive roaming cost when abroad!
You can even use it without GPS, in Flight Mode and on the iPod Touch, because it allows you to browse cities and buildings manually.
All projects have a full description, photos and additional details such as the name of the architect, the year it was built and the associated website. It also presents you with a Google Street View (when available).
This carefull selection of the major wonders of 20th and 21st century architecture spans traditions throughout the world, from Le Corbusier to the latest Pritzker Prize winners. From the renowned, famous icons to the hidden architectural gems.
An indispensable tool for travellers and city dwellers, to discover great buildings worldwide.

This app has been very useful to me, and I really appreciate it! The only thing I could ask for in addition would be to list some more architects and buildings around the world... For example I didn't see Greenwich, England listed and I would have liked to see the Royal Naval Hospital designed by architect Christopher Wren (whom I also did not see in the list of architects). Another good example is San Simeon, the lavish California estate located in San Francisco, and designed by Julia Morgan. But overall great app for people who are interested in architecture! Thanks again!!!
Great ap for architects & travellers. I would like to see a map option with location of all landmarks within the 50 mile radious (or whatever distance the user sets the radious to be). Kind of like when you search for something on gps. It shows all options. Currently this ap shows one landmark on the gps at the time. So I have to go back & forth & can't see the relative distance between landmarks. Otherwise it's great.
Needs more, and for less $
I was impressed with the app at first but it lacks details and pictures that could easily be found online through any and every search engine. Additionally I was very disappointed in the 'time limited trial'. If the app was updated with some more content and the price brought down to a dollar or two, it would get five stars. But for now, it gets one. :(
