Abstract
ALOSS is an acronym for “Album of Spatial Structures.” This is the name for a database of spatial structures from all over the world containing building names, photographs, addresses, architects, structural engineers, completion years, and so on. This database has been established in Japanese and English on the Internet in 1997, and it is mainly based on information collected by the second author. The URL of ALOSS is http://www.aloss.jp. So far, ALOSS has data on around 750 structures, and this number will increase steadily. Information relating to ALOSS is stored in a computer system at the University of Fukui, Japan, and this information is being continuously updated and refined. It is hoped that many people from all over the world will volunteer to help with the further expression of ALOSS. Any interested person should contact the first author.
