Big delivery of new stock this week:

The Taschen 25 series: At only £8.99 each, these accessible titles, presented with Taschen's typical style, introduce the life's work of famous architects.

We also have new books on Le Corbusier, Tadao Ando and Daniel Libeskind, and Music and Architecture by Iannis Xenakis.

The BLDG BLOG Book (£19.99) features the writings of Geoff Manaugh, author of the popular BLDGBLOG ( More than 200 pages of speculation about the future of the built environment, this book is "a road trip for the intellectually curious" - Justin McGuirk, Icon Magazine.

With the future of the University of Ulster now based firmly in Belfast city, perhaps lessons can be learned from Paris. Universities in the City: The Development of the Left Bank, Paris (£24.70) looks at new academic buildings on the Paris Rive Gauche.

Architecture, Participation and Society (£29.99) asks how architects can "best increase their engagement with building users and wider social groups, and, as a result, improve the relationship between architecture and society while providing quality buildings".

New Irish Architecture 24 - AAI Awards 2009 (£21.50) is now back in stock ahead of the AAI Awards 2009 exhibition at PLACE from December 3rd 2009 - January 30th 2010.
