A/D/O is a new space opening in Greenpoint, Brooklyn in late fall 2016. The 23,000 square-foot space will feature a world- class restaurant, prototyping studio, open workspace, design store and in-house accelerator in addition to professional programs.
Built for designers yet open to all, A/D/O will provide creatives with exclusive opportunities for professional growth, while also inviting the broader public to work casually from the space and engage with its various programs.
At the core of A/D/O is a design lab that will generate thought-provoking dialogue through topical research, special commissions, exhibitions, talks and workshops. It will gather the world’s leading thinkers and creators to explore the defining issues of the moment—surfacing new points of view, and embracing the resulting controversy.
A/D/O is an initiative of MINI and part of the company’s exploration of innovations that improve urban life. It aims to surface great design and be a prolific source of new ideas for the future.
