Hello and welcome to! WoB is an architectural and construction reference tool which is free and open for anyone to explore, share, edit and add to.

WoB was created with the simple belief that architectural inspiration and knowledge can be found everywhere -- from a small stone and wood house in a rural area to a skyscraper in a modern city. The world is made up of an incredible amount of 'built' inspiration and WoB hopes to make it just a little bit easier for everyone to display and access this information.

Focusing on three basic parts of the built world - the Buildings which surround us; the Materials that went into these buildings; and the People that made it all happen - WoB provides a platform where this world can be recorded, shared and learnt from.
