BRIC has a noteworthy history of mounting exhibitions in such design arenas as architecture, urban planning, graphic design and product design. In recent years, Brooklyn has emerged as a center for innovative design of all types created by a dynamic group of individuals and collaboratives who develop world-class ideas and solutions that answer many of today’s global and environmental concerns. Design offers functional innovations and art informs our sense of beauty, hence, the two disciplines are constantly working together and are fittingly interwoven.
