I asked my architect friend what kind of architecture apps she’d like to see. “An app that would tell you the notable buildings in your area,” she answered. So of course I had to do a search on Appolicious and I found just that…and many more.

Architectural Styles

Architectural Styles is a good introductory review of major architectural styles such as Gothic, Baroque, and Art Nouveau with a list of important buildings featuring those styles (often in European countries). It’s good to know that if I want to see Baroque in Brasil I should visit the Sao Francisco de Assis, or if I want to see Gothic in Germany, I can head over to the Liebfrauenkirche.
