Essential Architecture Books

Essential Architecture Books

Forming the core of our architecture list are some of the world’s most esteemed architectural publishers, such as NAi, Jovis, Metropolis and Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, alongside Hatje Cantz and The Museum of Modern Art. These publishers innovate by commissioning books on the issues that drive architecture and urbanism today-- sustainability, gentrification, psychogeography, new technologies--as well as printing monographs on leading architects and firms, both historical and contemporary. Here is our essential architecture library.
