Registration from May 15th to August 31th 2014.

As part of the transformation of the Brooklyn Navy Yard into a green technology and sustainable manufacturing 
complex, ONE Lab, a new school for design and science, will establish a collaborative teaching facility and public 
outreach center for socio-ecological design, to open in 2015.

The ONE Lab Smart Dock will located inside the Navy Yard’s newly-renovated Building 128 -- an 84,000 square foot 
former shipbuilding factory, which is being transformed into a high-tech center for design, prototyping, and new 
manufacture. Entrepreneurs, educators, and businesses in disciplines ranging from additive manufacturing, biotech, 
advanced robotics, architecture, and industrial design will work alongside one another in this unique space.

The ONE Lab Smart Dock will include spaces for lectures, events, and design studios for approximately thirty 
graduate level students. It will function both as a visual reference and spatial matrix for ONE Lab, a unique 
interdisciplinary research laboratory for industrial design, synthetic biology, landscape ecology, art, architecture, and 
master planning, The Dock will be part of the communal core of work environments in the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s New 
Lab innovation facility, which will be accessible to a variety of creative people and allow them to share equipment, like 
laser cutters and three-dimensional printers.

Because of its location and history, the Navy Yard facility will serve as a launching point for both theoretical and 
practical work that addresses smart design and the redevelopment of industrial and waterfront sites in New York and 
other cities worldwide.
