AJ Building Library

The AJ Buildings Library showcases thousands of exemplar projects, most from the last 20 years but including major projects back to 1900. You 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 the library includes full project data and comprehensive architectural photographs and drawings (plans, elevation, section) – all provided at high resolution. There is also a large number of working details. Drawings can be downloaded and printed out to their original scale.
