Ahead of the journey to Istanbul, travellers can use the guide to open up the historic, contemporary or conceptual architecture with a huge amount of information about the buildings.

The guide also shares information about the markets of Istanbul, and buildings in other nations such as contemporary architecture of Rome, the iconic residential buildings of Los Angeles and cities like Paris, Chicago and New York.
The editor-in-chief and co-founder of OpenBuildings, Tom Mallory said: "The launch of Guides today will give travellers and architecture enthusiasts a real source of expert information about the buildings around them."
