Yale University Press takes an encyclopedic approach to publishing in the history of architecture, design, and landscape. YUP is renowned for its publications in traditional areas of strength, including its impressive collaborations with the Paul Mellon Centre and the seminal Pevsner Architectural Guides. More recently, YUP has focused on expanding the chronological breadth of the list, with important monographs on topics spanning from archaic Rome to the nineteenth-century Ottoman Empire to modernist Brazil. Some recent highlights from our publishing program include exhibition catalogues devoted to the modernist figures Eileen Gray (Bard Graduate Center), Hector Guimard (Richard Driehaus Museum), and Pritzker-prize winner Eduardo Souto de Moura (Casa da Arquitectura). Monographs of note include Fabio Barry’s Painting in Stone, a sweeping look at marble in architecture from antiquity to the Baroque, Carolina Mangone’s careful study of emulation in Bernini’s Michelangelo, and Jean-Louis Cohen’s incisive look at Russia’s fascination with American architecture in Building a new New World (Canadian Centre for Architecture).
We offer a standing ovation to our authors, whose books this past year have been published at a uniquely challenging time, and who have responded with resilience; their books’ successes speak to the exceptional quality of the publications. We are proud to have continued our publishing collaborations with our museum partners, who have produced beautiful books even when the museums themselves have been closed to visitors, bringing attention to the art and to the important work of curators. We also extend special congratulations to Peter Christensen, whose book Germany and the Ottoman Railways: Art, Empire, and Infrastructure, won last year’s Alice Davis Hitchcock Award. We are thrilled to be able to belatedly recognize his important intervention in the history of nineteenth-century architecture and colonialism.
