The architecture and design publishing house Birkhäuser and the architecture publisher DETAIL have agreed to extend and expand their existing partnership. The agreement means that Birkhäuser will immediately make some 100 DETAIL books globally available in digital format through De Gruyter Online. In addition, DETAIL will continue to offer its print editions through Birkhäuser outside the German-language market.

'The DETAIL titles on the subject of construction are world-renowned, and they are an important element in Birkhäuser’s portfolio,' said Sven Fund, CEO of De Gruyter, the parent company of Birkhäuser since April 2012. 'Providing these important sources of information for architectural work in digital format is an innovative step – a step that reflects our expectation of increasing demand for digital information, not least in the artistic and creative realms.'

'After seeing the first Birkhäuser e-books at De Gruyter’s platform, we decided to offer our high-quality book series for architects through the site in digital format as well,' added Christian Wala, DETAIL’s publishing director for marketing and sales.
