About Bloomsbury Architecture Library

‘Every university library should subscribe to the online edition.’ - Barnabas Calder, Times Higher Education

Bloomsbury Architecture Library is a leading digital resource for the study of architecture, urbanism, and interior design.

The platform offers access to a carefully curated collection of fully-searchable text and image content, incorporating the new edition of Sir Banister Fletcher’s Global History of Architecture, exclusive to the platform and produced in partnership with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the University of London. The all new Banister Fletcher is global in focus and sits alongside peer-reviewed cutting-edge academic research and a wealth of images.

Bloomsbury Architecture Library will expand its offerings each year, as we plan to add more building pages, newly published Bloomsbury and I.B. Tauris titles and an image partnership with the National Archives at Kew. The below modules are also planned:

  • Bloomsbury Global Encyclopedia of Women in Architecture
  • Encyclopedia of Vernacular Architecture of the World 2nd edition
  • A Cultural History of Interiors
