The books, journals, and pamphlets published by the Office of Publications at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) record the school’s intellectual life and capture the contemporary stakes of architectural thought and research. These publications range widely in format and focus, drawing on the events, studios, and exhibitions that take place at GSAPP; they also result from independently-driven research and scholarly projects undertaken both within and without the school. Some of these books are found on our imprint, Columbia Books on Architecture and the City, published in partnership with Columbia University Press.

Our commitment to print includes broadening our notions of publication to encompass digital and hybrid publishing methods. In September 2014 we launched the Avery Review, a monthly digital periodical of critical essays on architecture. Launched in April 2016, this website includes a custom digital Reader built by Linked by Air and incorporates epub, PDF, print-on-demand, and other emerging formats, allowing us to use an expanded range of platforms as we continue to test the possibilities for architectural discourse.
