DETAIL Inspiration

DETAIL Inspiration provides architects with images and reference details for more than 3,000 projects from the last 30 years of DETAIL.

The integrated search function, with numerous filters, allows you to find precisely the right information. Each project described in the database is accompanied by DETAIL project documents. Publication information (edition/year) helps users to find the right edition in their print collections. The database content is expanded and updated with the release of each new issue of DETAIL.

Please note: this resource does not contain the content of DETAIL magazine, apart from the projects.
