Space is not easy to come by or cheap in New York City, so the prospect of four months of free space at Greenpoint’s A/D/O may be worth checking out. The application for it is open only until Aug. 31.
“Part laboratory, part coworking space, part design collective, the Workspace at A/D/O is a place where members explore new possibilities in design, products, objects, and fabrication,” according to Futureworks. “Members have access to a full suite of fabrication tools, the support from the Workspace team and access to the full calendar of A/D/O design programming.”
Futureworks is a project by the New York Economic Development Corporation, designed to aide the advanced manufacturing sector in New York.
A/D/O is a relatively new space built in the industrial corridors of Greenpoint. It’s owned by Mini, the subsidiary of BMW, and is home to designers and manufacturing startups from various programs.
