DOM publishers is a publishing house that publishes architectural guides and specialist publications on architecture, urban planning and design in an international context. DOM publishers is owner-managed by Philipp Meuser, who also works as an architect.
In addition to individual publications, DOM publishers publishes various series: handbooks, fundamentals and architecture guides. The unique selling point are publications on architecture in regions that are not the focus of public discussion, in particular on the history of building in the area of the former Soviet Union. This eastward orientation is also reflected in the publisher’s logo, a Cyrillic d for DOM.
Further thematic focuses are architecture in Africa and the Muslim world. The yearbook of the German Architecture Museum (DAM) has also been published by DOM publishers since 2017.
The books of DOM publishers appear primarily in German, but also in Danish, English, French, Italian, Russian, and Spanish.
DOM publishers also had a booth at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2019. In 2020 DOM publishers was awarded a German Publishing Prize as an “outstanding publisher” and thus received one of the top three annual prizes.
