While it may sound NSFW, the online guide ARCHIPORN is simply an informative guide to the world’s most beautiful architectural works, including various bookshops and institutions that specialize in architecture. First developed in 2008 by Brazilian architects Marcio Novaes Coelho Jr. and Silvio Sguizzardi, the project aims to identify and share information about iconic works from professionals around the world. The guide is chronologically organized, with different colors representing different eras. According to ArchDaily, cateogories range from before the year 1750, prior to the Machine Age, to recent works of 2010 and beyond.

The architects hail from the Sao Paulo studio, Sguizzardi.Coelho Arquitectura. The map was originally created in Berlin as a study and research tool, but the architects soon realized its potential to expand to other cities around the world. According to their website, the architects remain interested mostly in modern to contemporary architecture, especially the 20th century’s avant-garde movements.

The ARCHIPORN guide is organized by the following chronological categories:

2010- onwards: Recent works
1990-2009: Digital Revolution
1970-1989: Postmodernism
1946-1969: Internationalism and regionalism
1919-1945: Modern Architecture
1890-1918: Turn of the Century
1850-1889: Second Industrial Revolution
1750-1849: First Industrial Revolution
before-1750: Before the Machine Age

In New York, the architects highlighted iconic landmarks like William Van Alen’s Chrysler Building and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. However, the map also marks more contemporary designs, like Weiss/Manfredi’s Hunter’s Point South Waterfront Park and Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s High Line Park. Plus, the map starred the American Institute of Architects as a special place for architecture.
