Baukunst-nrw is an internet based guide to architecture and innovative engineering in North Rhine-Westphalia. As a dynamic platform, the content is directed towards the broader public, offering an overview of outstanding, interesting, innovative and historically significant projects in the fields of architecture, engineering as well as interior architecture, landscaping and urban design in North Rhine-Westphalia.
Using differentiated search options, you have the possibility to select projects - categorised by date, project type, location and author – which are of special interest to you.
Photos and descriptions offer an initial impression of the selected object. In addition, the object and its surroundings can be precisely located via an integrated link to Maps. Route directions can be created with multiple objects.
In principle, baukunst-nrw is a platform to which anybody interested can contribute. Suggestions for projects for inclusion can be made by members of the Chamber of Architects and their clients and employers, as well as by other parties.
The Chamber of Architects in North Rhine-Westphalia and the Chamber of Engineers North Rhine-Westphalia are responsible for the project, which is part of the initiative “StadtBauKultur NRW“.
The technical realisation of the project baukunst-nrw is supported by the Ministry of Construction of the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia.
