WELCOME TO AEWorldMap!
Using this site, you can explore the world of Architectural Engineering Design.
This blog is a project created and managed by Gregory Brooks. It is generously supported by many authors, including current and former students from The University of Texas at Austin, professional engineers and architects. Website concept and assistance is provided by Patrice Mailloux-Huberdeau at BMH Design Studio, in Austin, Texas.
NONE OF THE INFORMATION ON THIS WEBSITE IS USED FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.
The purpose of the information on this website, is to inform students and the general public about contemporary buildings around the world. Architectural Engineering (hence AEWorldMap) encompasses ideas about:

MISSION OF AEWorldMap
The professions of Architecture, Architectural Engineering and Building Construction are in the middle of a technological revolution. The reasons for this are that material technology is constantly improving, and computer design technology has matured from the drawing tool we saw introduced in the late 20th century to become a very powerful tool for:
– Engineering analysis
We can now design taller and more complex buildings that can only be understood with 3-dimensional computer modeling and analysis. Such complex buildings require tremendous creativity, rigor and innovation from the architecture, engineering and construction teams. Projects that utilize integrated design methods to coordinate members of the design, analysis and construction teams are setting new standards for working methods and outcomes.
None of us can travel frequently enough or read enough periodicals to keep up with all of the new buildings being built around the world…and so the idea for this web site was born: To create a searchable database of new buildings that are notable for contemporary Architectural Engineering design. For each entry, we try to find the names of the architect, engineers and construction team. We add notes at the bottom of each entry to mention why the building is of interest.
We have recently added two additional sites that are related to AEWORLDMAP.COM
(since Fall 2010 – large contributions occur each Spring and Fall)
This site features MORE ABOUT some the projects found on AEWORLDMAP.COM – plans, images and other information.
(since Spring 2011)
This site features the most prominent architectural and engineering firms around the world, listing their specialties and providing some history of the firms or founders.
As of Spring 2012, we are focusing this research more on U.S. and Texas firms.
