Architecture
The Architecture section is divided into two subsections—pre-20th Century architecture and 20th Century Architecture. The pre-20th Century section is organized alphabetically by country, then alphabetically by city, then alphabetically by architectural subcategory (see below). Each site is then organized into the order shown below.

The 20th Century section is organized alphabetically by architect’s name, then alphabetically by architectural subcategory (see below), then alphabetically by site or project.
