A/D/O is a design space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn that provides a new platform for designers to collaborate and foster a broader conversation across disciplines. Reflecting A/D/O’s facilitation of cross pollinating creative ideas, the transformation of the 23,000-square-foot building was guided by a principle of remixing. Occupying a former warehouse, the new space provides variable connections between spaces for events and exhibitions, design education, free communal workspace, a fabrication lab, a design shop, and a new restaurant, Norman. Neither rooms nor an open hall, the spaces bleed into each other, allowing curious visitors to see what would normally be going on behind closed doors.
