About This Show
Homo Sapiens, I Hear You is a monthly research seminar held at A/D/O; a design institution in Brooklyn, New York. The series aims to question and re-think humanity's essential needs -- and consider whether the modern practice of design addresses them. The podcast, produced by Elle Clay, will feature experts, doctors and designers from each month's live seminar along with A/D/O Research Director, Dr. Nelly Ben Hayoun. A/D/O is an initiative of MINI and reflects a fundamental belief that designers hold the keys to progress.
