MINI Living

Alter-Projects as the Lead Curator for A/D/O by MINI is working closely with the MINI Living teams to put forward key talents in order to create key disruptive installations in Shanghai, Berlin and NYC.




MINI is diversifying into urban development with the MINI Living building in Shanghai, which will see a disused industrial complex transform into apartments, offices and leisure spaces.

The announcement of the MINI Living building marks the latest stage in MINI's evolution from a dedicated automobile manufacturer into a multifaceted lifestyle brand, with a focus on maximising quality of life in compact spaces.

Alter-Projects as the Lead Curator for A/D/O will be in charge of the curation of the large installations of the A/D/O spaces in NYC, Shanghai and Berlin opening in 2019 and 2020.

A few examples below of some of the Artwork currently on display at A/D/O but soon to be featured in the various MINI Living spaces.
