ADAM arts is a double-blind peer-reviewed academic journal dedicated to Architecture and Media Arts from the Baltic Sea region, published once a year by RISEBA University, both in print and online. ADAM arts aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and scholars, as well the practitioners in the domain of interest from around the world.

We encourage a variety of approaches to the urban phenomenon - the strengths of the editorial board run from urban planning to architecture, design and digital media.
