Open Access Database

One of the aims of EWAP is to create a long-term open-access digital repository hosting documentation of endangered wooden architecture recorded from around the world. The archive has been developed using Arches, an open-source data management platform, that allows free and open online access to the architectural information generated by the programme. Here users can read, download, share, print, or search the information, and use it in education or in any other non-commercial way under the license CC BY-NC-SA 4.0.

The Arches open access database

The Arches database will be released in spring 2024
