What is AD Magazine?
Founded in 1930, Architectural Design (AD) is an influential and prestigious publication. It combines
the currency and topicality of a newsstand journal with the rigour and production qualities of a book.
With an almost unrivalled reputation worldwide, it is consistently at the forefront of cultural thought
and design. Issues of AD are edited either by the journal Editor, Neil Spiller, or by an invited Guest-Editor. Renowned for being at the leading edge of design and new technologies, AD also covers themes as diverse as architectural history, the environment, interior design, landscape architecture and urban design.
Provocative and pioneering, AD inspires theoretical, creative and technological advances. It questions the outcome of technical innovations as well as the far-reaching social, cultural and environmental challenges that present themselves today.
