The SVA Library has just begun a 30-day trial to Building Types Online, a resource for the study and practice of architectural design. BTO has a large international collection of contemporary buildings, from housing and offices to museums, schools and other building types, with a focus on floor plans and other architectural drawings. It offers exclusive and unparalleled, highly flexible and detailed search and browse access to the contents of the Birkhäuser program on building types. It includes over 150 thematic articles, 1,000 case studies, 5,500 high quality architectural drawings, and 2,200 photographs of buildings. 

A direct link can also be found on the Library's Databases page.
