Architecture
Featured In {{{books}}}

This template allows you to describe architecture, usually buildings and structures, but sometimes other products of civil engineering and infrastructure, such as roads and bridges.

This template makes use of several optional location parameters - city, state, region, nation. When multiple of those are known - e.g. Kredik Shaw is in the city of Luthadel and the Final Empire nation - include only the most local one; in this case, only the city.

Template[edit]

On lines with multiple parameters (e.g. |world= / earth=) pick only the one most appropriate.

Parameters[edit]

Universes[edit]

While many of Brandon Sanderson's stories take place in named connected universes, some do not. For categorization purposes, we use dedicated names only for connected universes (i.e. universes with stories taking place on multiple planets), and consider everything else a standalone universe. Currently, the only valid values for the universe parameter are:

Note that by convention [[Cosmere]] should be linked.
