We are pleased to announce the launch of the third series of ADF Papers exploring new directions in British architecture, design and fashion. The ADF Papers are an ongoing series that sees the Architecture, Design and Fashion department engage with experts in the sector to consider key issues relevant to contemporary practice in the UK. Each paper includes an introduction, case studies, examples of recent projects and links for further information. Through commissioning of the papers we share our understanding of new ideas in British design with our Arts Managers overseas, as well as design professionals abroad and in the UK to spark ideas for future projects.

The third series features writing from Edwin Heathcote, Alyn Griffiths and Hywel Davies. Case studies include 6a architects and Eley Kishimoto, Assemble, Haworth Tompkins, Carmody Groarke, Richard Wentworth and Gruppe, Assa Ashuach, Catherine Wales, Daniel Widrig, Matthew Plummer-Fernandez, Craig Green, Kit Neale, Lou Dalton and Christopher Raeburn.

Series three continues to be designed by Axel Feldman at objectif, and creates a typography developed from an image of one of the case studies featured within. These pictograms present a unique visual identity for each of the papers. They are printed on Colorplan paper by GF Smith and can also be downloaded from the relevant blogs on each paper:

A3: Pop Up Architecture by Edwin Heathcote

D3: 3D Printing by Alyn Griffiths

F3: New British Menswear by Hywel Davies

As always we are keen to hear your thoughts on the papers so comments, feedback and ideas for future areas of research are welcome.
