Architravel


“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”

Robert Frost

Archi.Travel was founded in 2008, during a trip, giving the travelling group new form and entity. The fundamental purpose of the website is to gather information and experiences from the past travels thus creating an electronic Arcitectural City Guide.
Through texts, pictures and maps, the most significant architectural buildings will be described, and there will be recommended “architectural journeys”.
Parallel to this, members will be fully informed about the latest (travel) excursions organized by Archi.Travel and the possibility to take part in them.

    Rare Book Room

    The “Rare Book Room” site has been constructed as an educational site intended to allow the visitor to examine and read some of the great books of the world.

    Over the last decade, a company called “Octavo” digitally photographed some of the world ’s great books from some of the greatest libraries. These books were photographed at very high resolution (in some cases at over 200 megabytes per page).

    This site contains all of the books ( 558) that have been digitized to date. These range over a wide variety of topics and rarity. The books are presented so that the viewer can examine all the pages in medium to medium-high resolution.
