Birkhäuser is a leading publisher for architecture, landscape architecture, and design. Our readership are architects and interior designers, landscape architects and urban planners, graphic artists, and product designers as well as students in these specific fields.

Birkhäuser’s program aims to support these professional groups from both practice and academia in their daily work, and is focused on processes and workflows such as:

  • Designing buildings and products: finding inspiration and developing ideas
  • Typologies: different building types such as housing, schools, office buildings
  • Constructing buildings: with various methods and materials
  • Building practice: in the office and on the building site
  • Studying and teaching architecture.

Birkhäuser stands for high quality – in terms of content as well as book design and production standards. Our publications convey practical knowledge while seeking to be more than just useful: they are attractive and well-made tools. We are committed to making informative and inspiring books that are a pleasure to hold in the hand, books that take our readers – and us too – a step further.
