Adam's work moves between space, facilitation and performance. As an interdisciplinary scholar Adam specialises in the intersection of feelings, culture, and inequality in the city, guided by feminist and queer thinking. Adam is particularly invested in collaboration and co-authorship as an intellectual ethic, and in exploring the possibilities of radical facilitation for collective thought and action. Adam is Senior Tutor (Research) at the Royal College of Art, leading the MRes Architecture Programme and Critical & Historical Studies. Adam is the Co-Founder and former Director of Theatrum Mundi, the international urban research centre on the culture of cities, and was Visiting Professor at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto (2016).
Adam is a co-founder of the Fiction Feeling Frame research collective at RCA, and was a co-founder of the transatlantic collective When We Build Again.
