DOM's extensive publishing programme combines both of their passions: architecture and designing high-quality books. Experienced editors, creative graphic designers, and architects work at the interface of theory and practice under one roof in the Friedrichswerder area in Berlin. DOM publishes up to 40 new titles each year and aim to provide architects, instructors, and students with a valuable foundation for their daily work and to make a critical contribution to the contemporary debate on architecture. In addition to the series of manuals, architectural guides, and basics, their thematic focuses include the architectural history of the former Soviet Union as well as architecture in Africa and the Muslim world. DOM’s books are published primarily in English and German, but increasingly also in Russian, French, Italian, and Spanish. DOM’s global distribution network means their titles can be purchased in architecture bookshops around the world, from New York to Moscow through to Tokyo.
