Birkhäuser and China Architecture and Building Press renew preferred partnership

August 31, 2012

The architecture and design publishers Birkhäuser and China Architecture and Building Press (CABP) have extended their cooperation. On the occasion of the 19. Beijing International Book Fair, representatives of both publishing houses inked an agreement that gives the respective other party privileged access to new publications.

“Over the past eight years, we have exchanged rights for 60 titles”, says Dr. Sven Fund, CEO of Birkhäuser’s parent company De Gruyter. “We have thus significantly expanded the reception of our authors in one of the most important growth regions of the world.”

“CABP and Birkhäuser will continue to develop top quality content for architects, landscape architects and designers jointly”, says Mr. Shen Yuanqin, President of China Architecture and Building Press. “One of the most remarkable joint projects has been the book on the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.”

Birkhäuser and CABP are two of the most renown professional publishers in architecture worldwide and are active in publishing architecture books both in print and electronically.
