Our extensive publishing programme combines both of our passions: architecture and designing high-quality books. We publish up to 40 new titles each year and aim to provide architects, instructors, and students with a valuable foundation for their daily work and to make a critical contribution to the contemporary debate on architecture. In addition to the series of manuals, architectural guides, and basics, our thematic focuses include the architectural history of the former Soviet Union as well as architecture in Africa and the Muslim world. Our books are published primarily in English and German, but increasingly also in Russian, French, Italian, and Spanish. Our global distribution network means our titles can be purchased in architecture bookshops around the world, from New York to Moscow through to Tokyo.
