Architecture and Design

Diversity is a source of strength: De Gruyter is home to the renowned imprints Birkhäuser, JOVIS, and Deutscher Kunstverlag. Birkhäuser publishes in the fields of architecture, design, and landscape architecture, while JOVIS focuses on architecture, urban planning, contemporary art, and photography.

Although specialized in art and cultural history, Deutscher Kunstverlag offers a number of architectural publications. Our portfolio is additionally enhanced by our publisher partner DETAIL, which serves architects and construction engineers.
