Over the years IAAC has always valued the importance of establishing and setting the ideas, projects and research developed in the Institute in publications. Some of the milestones of these publications, consisting of collective works, have been HiperCatalunya (2003) and The Metapolis Dictionary of Advanced Architecture (2001), developed by the founders of IAAC.
Likewise, the book series also demonstrates the importance of the Institute as a centre for the exchange of knowledge and the latest in innovation. Among these the Advanced Architecture contest series – Self-Sufficient Housing (2006), Self-Fab House (2010), The Self-Sufficient City (2010), City Sense (2013), Self-Sufficient Habitat, Responsive Cities, Design for Living (2021), Design for Biocities (2023) and the Interview series: Interview with Gunter Pauli (2011), Interview with John Palmesino & Ann-Sofi Rönnskog (2012), and Interview with Bernard Tschumi (2015).
Other IAAC Publications include: Taipei-Prototype of Urbanity (2007), geoCat – Territorial Loops (2004), Media House Project (2004), met 2.0 – Barcelona Metapolis (2000), met 1.0 – Barcelona Metapolis (1999), and many more. IAAC has also now an online publication platform with ISSN known as IAAC bits, a collective container of knowledge and material stimulating, promoting and developing research in the diverse areas of advanced architecture through a multi-disciplinary approach on both a local and global scale.
