For architecture students and professionals alike, images are the only way to get a solid conception of a structure, which is why the Visual Resources Collection at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (or Columbia GSAPP) has released its cache of over 20,000 architectural image files. The massive database, which is available through the Artstor Digital Library, will be available to the majority of architecture education institutions around the world.

Earlier this year, Columbia GSAPP released the first phase of its database dump, with 10,000 images hitting the Artstor Digital Library. Now, Columbia GSAPP's Phase 2 includes close to 1,000 completed buildings from 44 countries including close to 100 projects from Le Corbusier, 100 projects in South America, and over 125 projects in Japan.
