Find Great Architecture, Inspiration in Your Own Back Yard with ‘Buildings’

You might not realize it, but there are some really sweet looking buildings and architecture in your town. In fact, according to, there are more than 40,000 spots around the world that are worth admiring for their beauty and design.

A new application dedicated to finding and highlighting buildings recently entered the Android Market, which is based off of the OpenBuilding platform. Aptly titled Building, it accesses the massive database to return images, information, video and more for both historical buildings as well as modern architecture. We spent some time playing with the app today and found plenty of great things in our town to check out. Users can also create and log into accounts to add photos, comments, or mark spots as favorites.

Buildings is free to download in the Android Market and runs on any device with 2.1 or higher.  Read on through to see a few screen shots and download links.
