Where CENTER explores topics through a broad approach, Centerline is more focused, with each volume offering an investigation into—or the documentation of—a particular project, practice, or line of thought. These have included a survey of Central Texas dance halls, a study of the Poetry Foundation building in Chicago, and companion publications for CAAD-hosted exhibitions and symposia.

Centerline books are typically shaped by a single author or curator with supplementary texts by others. While the subjects are wide-ranging, the format is limited to eight-by-eight inches, offering a compact collection of records of the study of architecture and design.
