The highlight of Tour Tampa Bay Architecture is a self-guided walking tour of significant architecture in Downtown Tampa. An interesting array of 22 historic, modern, sustainable, award-winning and critically acclaimed buildings and locations are featured. Information is, in most cases, only accessible once your reach the building, by scanning a QR Code that has been placed on or near it. This way you are able to truly appreciate and experience it. The location of the QR Code is shown in the photo marking the building location on the downtown map.

Find the code on or near the building, scan the code using the FREE QR code software on your mobile device and access information about the history, architecture, architect and other interesting facts. Almost all pages have short multimedia clips and more detailed information is available to read.
