Van Alen Books is New York City's new center for architecture and design publications where books are read, sold, discovered, and discussed. They have over 1,000 recent releases, classics, and rare and out-of-print titles. There's also a public reading room on the 6th floor in the same building stocked with another 1,000 architecture and design titles for your reading pleasure.
VAB is made possible through seed funding from Furthermore: a program of the J. M. Kaplan Fund, as well as support from VAI's Van Alen Circle members. The new shop was designed by the architectural firm LOT-EK and we strongly encourage you to check it out not just for the smart design, but also for the store's noteworthy and comprehensive selection of architecture and design books.
