JOVIS publishes titles in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, city planning, contemporary art, photography, and design. With our publications we strive to depict relevant debates and also to shape current discourse and provide it with new direction. Our press focuses in particular on topics in urban studies, participatory city planning, city development, landscape theory, and historical preservation. Further interests include how architecture and art interact, as well as how to connect scholarly theories with plans of action through interdisciplinary approaches.
Our books stand out because of their relevant content, their high-quality design, and the care taken in their production. Correspondingly, they are highly regarded in national and international daily presses and in the trade press.
