AADR is published by the German publisher Spurbuchverlag, an independent publishing house established in Bamberg, Germany in 1982. Inspired by ‘Spur‘, which translates as path or trace, Spurbuch’s Art, Architecture and Design Research (AADR) forges new pathways across the trandisciplinary fields, to explore and promote innovative relations between creative practice and research.

With more than 30 years of publishing experience and with over 400 successfully published titles, Spurbuch has established a formidable expertise in creative and artistic research in art, architecture, design and related fields.
