Within the Réseau Art Nouveau Netwerk (RANN), some individual members have taken it upon themselves to create a map with all Art Nouveau places in the world. Members that deserve all the credit for this monumental job are Jacques Lasserre and Christian Schwarzer. They have traveled around the world and over the years built a massive database with photos that they are now incorporating into this map. For us.
With their map, it should become fairly easy for all of us who are interested in Art Nouveau, to prepare our next trip to a foreign place, and see all the beautiful architecture once we arrive. Please enjoy!

Contribute to the Art Nouveau Atlas
If you would like to contribute to this Art Nouveau Atlas, you are encouraged to send your contributions to Jacques Lasserre. Particularly the white areas are of interest as most information from those areas is in cyrillic and unfortunately we can’t read that.
The information we need includes: the address of the building, the year of construction and the name of the architect. If possible, a photo would be great. And if the building is mentioned online somewhere, like on wiki or anywhere else, the URL of that page could be helpful too. If a building has a name, we’ld like to get the name too. Or a special purpose, like school, hospital, hotel, station etc. You get the point! Any information will be greatly appreciated!
Réseau Art Nouveau Network (RANN)
The RANN, composed of institutions and experts from European Art Nouveau cities, was formed in 1999 to study, promote and help protect Art Nouveau heritage so it can endure for future generations to enjoy. They undertake a wide range of activities including exhibitions, publications, conferences and cultural exchanges aimed at adults, children, neophytes, researchers and professionals.
