Ediciones ARQ was born in 1980 from the publication of ARQ journal — which has been published regularly since then — reaching its current four-monthly rhythm in 1995. Under the direction of architect and academic Montserrat Palmer, our first book was published nine years after the journal’s foundation, initiating a production that today includes many titles dedicated to design and research in architecture, landscape and the city. The main objective of both the publishing house and the journal is to foster culture and promote the advancement of knowledge of architecture and the contemporary city in Chile and the world.

Today, this objective is pursued not only through bilingual publications, which allow us to expand our reach internationally, but also through the exploration of new formats that have allowed us to keep our production and printing costs down without compromising our editorial quality. Thus, by broadening our scope and having competitive prices, Ediciones ARQ has been undergoing a twofold expansion process: targeting new audiences and expanding our catalog at a dizzying pace.

In this way, we strive to reach not only architects but also students and people interested in knowing more about the environment that surrounds them: architecture, landscape, and cities.

What we do

Our editorial work is channeled into two lines of production: the quarterly publication of ARQ journal and the edition of a wide array of books about architecture, landscape and the city — that to date make up a catalog of over a hundred titles.

As a publishing house born in the academic world, Ediciones ARQ understands architecture as a form of cultural production that is not limited to the building itself. Architecture can be designed, but it can also be written, researched, and taught. We therefore aim to publish titles that contribute to the advancement of architecture-, urban- and landscape-related knowledge and that stem from a range of sources such as research, academic exercises, theory, or design. Since knowledge is not confined to the academic world, our publishing house is also involved in what happens in other spheres, publishing it with the same level of quality and intellectual rigor that characterizes it.
