"This book has emerged from researchers at ETH Zurich, one of Europe’s leading architecture schools, and it shows how lively engagement by academic institutions with interesting questions can produce first-rate results. Very far from being a dusty tome, this large and generous book combines its photographic surveys and detailed case studies with useful historical summaries and charts, and essays by experts on specific themes."
Timothy Brittain-Catlin, World of Interiors
We've opened our new bookstore! Never Stop Reading is located in Zurich's old town, only a few steps from the Kunsthaus, the University, and ETH. The store features a broad range of international publications on architecture, photography, art, and design, as well as a section of general-interest English books. The new spaces can be used for small exhibitions and we'll be hosting a diverse program of book launches, readings, panel discussions . . . We're looking forward to seeing you there!

Communicating Architecture is an ongoing joint undertaking of publishers Park Books (Zurich) and JOVIS (Berlin). Today, books are more often chosen for the topics they cover than for the name of the publisher behind them. We decided to pick up on this trend by presenting our books at a joint stand at last year’s book fair in Frankfurt in combination with a program of architecture- and urbanism-related events. Having been well received at the fair, our cooperation continues in the form of different events and initiatives revolving around the topics of architecture and architecture books.
This year, three books from Park Books received one of the ten DAM Architectural Book Awards 2016. The jury did select the year’s ten best architectural books from 214 entries. Among the award winners are African Modernism, designed by Marie Lusa, Habitat Marocain Documents, designed by Adrian Ehrat as well as Völlig losgelöst, designed by Andreas Hidber. Designing TWA and Gisela Erlacher Skies of Concrete have made it on the shortlist.
We are very proud and congratulate all those who contributed to this success!
