Columbia Books on Architecture and the City aims to expand the ground of architectural discourse. Bringing together designers, scholars, planners, artists, theorists, and curators, often working outside of the expected formats of their fields, we focus on books that ask urgent questions about what architecture is and what it does—and to model different forms of architectural production beyond building. We hope to amplify new voices while reflecting on those who’ve shaped the field in vital ways, and to publish books that explore architecture’s intersections, rethink the assumptions and epistemologies of practice, and confront the discipline’s blind spots and complicity in enduring forms of injustice.

The imprint’s commitment to print is paired with experiments in digital and hybrid publishing methods. Our monthly journal of critical essays on architecture, the Avery Review, can be found at averyreview.com; our experiment in email-based discourse, Avery Shorts, can be found at averyshorts.com; and our online reader can be found at arch.columbia.edu/books/reader.
