The "greatbuildings" site is a good resource but ... you get "donate now" pages when clicking on photo links.
Poor baby! You're getting a whole bunch of free information, often hard to find anywhere else, and periodically you get asked politely for a donation. What a hardship!
You may not be aware that GreatBuildings.com and ArchitectureWeek are the sponsors of this forum. Sincerely, we really do need the support of generous architecture lovers everywhere to provide these resources!
If you subscribe to GreatBuildings.com, not only do you support the growth and maintenance of the archive, but you get to skip the subscription request screens.
GreatBuildings.com, sharing architecture around the world and across history, is currently free for all viewing, even though, as the most visited general architecture site on the Web, the server and bandwidth costs alone amount to thousands monthly.
We receive architectural photographic contributions twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week over the web.
Like a number of other unique cultural institutions, GreatBuildings.com is published by a public-service-oriented commercial establishment. It has been maintained and upgraded continuously since before there was a World-Wide Web (originally as a desktop CD-ROM architecture reference).
Subscriptions to GreatBuildings.com are just $25 annually ($35 for both ArchWeek and Great Buildings), or $10 for students ($15 for both ArchWeek and Great Buildings). Group subscription rates are also available.
Alternatively, we would also be most happy to receive an endowment of funds that would let us leave out ads and subscriptions completely. In the meantime, please subscribe!
