Building Matters has an extensive and growing library on architecture and urban planning, visual histories of Ann Arbor and Michigan, and critical texts on equity, diversity, and sustainability as they pertain to the built environment. This collection is available for anyone to use: architects, planners, designers, and everyone looking to understand our community's development a little bit better. We even have a pretty great section for kids! Just come on in and pick out your next book.



Help us grow our collection! We keep a running wish list of books in print with our friends at Literati Bookstore. Books out of print we have listed over at Amazon, but please note most of these can be ordered by special request through local bookstores!).
