About Events with A/D/O
The very first Mini, built in 1959, became a design icon, and had a deeply human appeal: in its look, visceral driving experience and accessibility. And it was invented as an answer to a pressing social issue. In the midst of an acute fuel shortage, Sir Alec Issigonis set up a secret design office to develop a small car, that would break all the rules of car engineering at the time. The name of his team: Amalgamated Drawing Office, A/D/O.
