archINFORM is an online database for international architecture, originally emerging from records of interesting building projects from architecture students from the University of Karlsruhe, Germany.

The self-described "largest online-database about worldwide architects and buildings", it contains plans and images of buildings both built and potential and forms a record of the architecture of the 20th century; the database uses a search engine which allows a particular project to be found by listing architect, location or key word.[1] It has been described by the librarian of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation as "one of the most useful reference tools concerning architecture available on the internet."[2]
