Inspiration & Reference
I just wanted to know if people had any links to good websites for either level design inspiration (photos, paintings, concept art, etc.) or just for architectural reference. We had a thread like this on the old qmap, but we know how much good that does us.

Asian Reference 
Welcome to, a photographic survey of Asia's architectural heritage. Here you can view over 6500 photos of 462 sites in seventeen countries, with background information and virtual tours. This website is a collection of photos from many different contributors.

Maybe some people have links to good articles on leveldesign theory ?

For example gamasutra features, like

Worth Making It A Thread Probably 
useful articles like that are hard to find, the ones on the TeamShambler site spring to mind though
