These will be displayed on the wall of fame over the course of the installation.

The first habitable MINI LIVING project will also open its doors in Shanghai in 2019. Here, an innovative space-related concept for living and working is taking shape in a converted industrial buildings on a surface area of just under 8,000 square meters.
 
The MINI Story

MINI was born from a brave, inventive spirit that challenged the status quo and disrupted conventions. In 1959, in midst of post-war austerity and fuel shortages, Sir Alec Issigonis ingeniously turned crisis into an opportunity. He addressed saving fuel as both an engineering and design challenge, which he solved through what became a trademark of MINI: Creative use of space. His transverse engine broke the rules of car engineering, as we knew it. His radical design eliminated anything that felt superfluous
 
Issigonis creation was remarkable, but it really only became a MINI when he got a little help from his friend, motorsport pioneer John Cooper. Cooper took the prototype out for a spin and realised this fuel-saving people’s car cornered like no other. He convinced Issigonis to ready the MINI for the Rallye Monte Carlo. The rest is racing history. If Issigonis was a Minimiser, Cooper was something of a Maximiser: While the former focused on essential, the latter was all about maximising the experience.
 
Of course, the first MINI did not re-invent the wheel. It fundamentally revolutionised the idea of what an automobile could be. It broke rules. Its innovative suspension system gave it the famous MINI go-kart feeling that fans still rave about. Its exterior, created by an engineer who dared to think differently, was unmistakable – and made the MINI an instant design icon. But perhaps most of all it was the productive tension between the approaches of Issigonis and Cooper, the dichotomy between the minimalist and the maximalist, which made MINI so unique. This resulted in a bold, small car that saved fuel, but not on driving fun. And that continues to inspire to this day.
