The Armeniaca Project was first launched by AGBU Europe in October 2011, with the goal to collect and preserve records of Armenian architectural heritage. From Poland to Portugal, from Turkey to Sweden, Armenian communities have prospered in and contributed to the societies within which they lived for centuries. The Armeniaca project, implemented with the support of the European Union, has carried out the digitization of the most significant private archival materials on Armenian architecture available in Europe. The result of this effort is a detailed database of 250,000 scanned documents, photographs, drawings, scientific studies, maps, and monographs of Armenian monuments in Europe and the Middle-East, and in Turkey, in particular, where much of this heritage remains.
Our goal is to preserve this knowledge and make it more accessible, by making the database available to scholars, students, researchers, and artists.
The Armeniaca project is the result of a collaboration between the AGBU Europe, the Centro Studi e Documentazione della Cultura Armena (Italy), Inside Europe (Belgium) and Research in Armenian Architecture (Armenia). To learn more about this project, visit the website here.
