Not available on Waterstones.com

Euroscan is an interactive guide to 20th Century architecture covering 1000 buildings in Northern Europe. It will not only tell you all about a particular building but will also find groups of buildings that have something in common. Here you will find buildings of architectural interest with information about their dates, how to find them, their designers and references to magazine or book articles where further information can be found. Euroscan covers buildings in Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Great Britain, the Republic of Ireland, Northern Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Northern Spain and Switzerland. You will find Euroscan more flexible than written guides, which tend to be either specific to a particular city, or take a very broad approach to a wider area. You will have access to a wide range of records, but you can make very specific selections from the records available to suit your particular interests and travel plans. Buildings can be selected by any combination of fields, for example: country, city, architect, type of building, date. Some information such as the address of a building, how to reach it, opening hours, etc are often very difficult to find and Euroscan has been designed to solve this problem for you. Once you have selected your data they can be displayed and printed to ensure that you have a guide book to meet your needs. Example: 'I really like the work of Miles van der Rohe. What cities should I visit in order to see a good selection of his buildings?' By typing in Miles van der Rohe in the Architect field, you will see a list of all his buildings which are mentioned in the database. By sorting this list by city you will easily see where you will have to visit: Barcelona; Berlin; Brno; Krefeld and Stuttgart. And which cities have the most examples: Berlin Once on the ground in the city, the print out from Euroscan provides all the information you need to find the building. It will tell you not only the street address but also transport details, such as what metro station to get off at.
