Metropolis Books

Metropolis Books publishes timely, thought-provoking, useful, and beautiful books that explore how design shapes culture, even as culture shapes the designed environment at every scale. Books focus on contemporary issues in architecture, urbanism, preservation, interior design, product design, and landscape architecture, particularly as these relate to the sustainable, natural environment and evolving technologies.
Metropolis Books was founded by Sharon Helgason Gallagher and Horace Havemayer III. The imprint is a collaboration between Metropolis Magazine and ARTBOOK | D.A.P.
