Gaudí, Wright, Niemeyer and Le Corbusier: Take a Virtual Tour Through Iconic Architecture

With a sizable portion of the world's population hunkered down at home, online activities have become the go-to for those looking to fill, often hours, of newfound free time. Thanks to the cooperation of several companies, anyone with an internet connection now has access to a trove of online educational (courses, workshops, tutorials) and recreational (documentaries, digital books, virtual tours) activities that can be enjoyed from home. Just a few years ago, Google Street View was a practical tool for virtually navigating the world's metropolitan and suburban centers. Today, thanks to technological improvements and user-driven data collection, Street View has become a way to glimpse inside some of the world's most iconic buildings.

Here, we will take a virtual look inside 10 of the most iconic homes in the world, organized according to their date of construction, using data collected by Google Street View and Photo Sphere:
