The prefix ad– suggests a moving toward something, some person, or place. In respect to the self, the suggested turn is inward, toward a point of internal reflection and speculation. With this in mind, ad– takes the name of the journal: an annually published collection of essays, fictions, illustrations, and more. Ad– is a depository for the long-form explication of ideas in various forms and media. It seeks to contribute back to the architectural discourse shaped by the academic institution while simultaneously expanding its boundaries.
