As the leading global publisher of architecture books, RIBA Publishing aspires to inquire, inform and delight.
Seeking out the intelligence that enables architects and designers to do their jobs better, publications also support students of all ages in their studies and help clients to make informed decisions, while responding to a wider cultural appetite for architectural knowledge.
Forward focused, the onus is on asking questions that will help architects improve our world, whether addressing climate change, new technologies or emerging social issues.
Books are developed as containers of deep knowledge that are distributed internationally through a wide range of retail and sales channels. Associated ideas and research are disseminated with authors through RIBA Academy, events, podcasts and short-form articles.
While drawing on the exceptional expertise within RIBA, commissioning is outward looking and inquisitive, engaging with diverse voices and design experts from around the world.
Believing that the visual matters for architects and designers, printed books are highly illustrated and designed, aspiring to be beautiful and tactile.
Trusted and authoritative, RIBA Publishing strives for high editorial standards: book proposals and manuscripts are peer reviewed by relevant professionals, academics and experts; manuscripts are developed by editors with authors; and rigorous production and design processes are in place.
Simultaneously published as print books and ebooks, RIBA Publishing titles are widely available in the UK through RIBA Books and all good booksellers. They are distributed internationally in print and as ebooks through a publishing partnership with Taylor & Francis.
