Online Archives of Famous Architects

Below you will find a list of online archives of famous architects. Many of the archives are hosted by universities or foundations and contain photos, drawings, sketches, and writings. These archives will be very useful for research, but will also help inspire architects in their work. While there are plenty of digital archives that are available only in libraries, we are listing below the archives that are freely available over the internet. We are also including the websites of prominent architects if they showcase a wide range of projects with enough detail to make the archive useful.

If you find any broken links or know of any archives that we are missing, please let us know and we will update the list.

The list of archives is organized in alphabetical order by architect's last name or by the firm/organization name where applicable.
