The Assemblage is a place where people can work based on the notion that all living things are connected as one. Beyond a physical space, it’s a chance for people to see potential for a more collaborative version of society.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 20, 2017
Today, The Assemblage announced the official launch of a series of coworking, coliving, and social spaces. The Assemblage is a community established on a shared system of values, collective consciousness and the idea that humans need to move to a new system whereby people are rewarded for the good their labor brings to the wider world.
The Assemblage is the brainchild of Rodrigo Niño, CEO of Prodigy Network, an accomplished real estate developer and economist originally from Colombia known for crowdfunding commercial properties in Manhattan.
In contrast to other coworking and living spaces, The Assemblage has a big picture vision to be part of a transition from a society defined by individualism and separation into one of interconnectedness. They are calling this new era the “age of assembly.” Its goals are to provide physical spaces where people can work to leverage solution-based crowdfunding to create positive change and meet individual passions and goals. Another goal is to establish a new form of cryptocurrency which will be used for crowdfunding projects.
“The Assemblage is a place where people can work based on the notion that all living things are connected as one. It’s an existence that enables individuality, but also collective connection,” said Niño. “Beyond a physical space, it’s a chance for people to see potential for a more collaborative version of society.”
At age 41, Niño was diagnosed with stage 3 Metastatic Melanoma. After two surgeries, his odds of survival were about 1 in 3 over the next five years. He began to experience “end-of-life distress,” a term doctors use to describe the depression, increased suicidal tendencies and demoralization of many terminal patients. Upon learning traditional medicine could not do much for him, he traveled to Peru to partake in an ayahuasca ceremony. After spending a night with a curandero, his fear of dying was gone.
“I had a hallucination which showed me a societal framework in which individuals contribute their interests and passions to improve society as a whole,” explains Niño. “This is the premise of The Assemblage: to bring together like-minded individuals to combine technology, consciousness, and capital. We believe impact and capital are not mutually exclusive.”
The Assemblage celebrates members who embody the belief of ‘doing well by doing good’, including people like Muneeb Ali, Founder of Blockstack; Soren Rose, Founder of Klein; Robin Sosnow, Founder of Lawlab; and Paloma Teppa and Yair Marcoschamer of Plant the Future.
Within the spaces, daily and weekly programming aimed at fostering mind, body, and spirit to help people combine their well-being and works lives, are on offer. Ayurvedic dining and plant-based juice and elixir bars are available free of charge to resident members at all locations to encourage seasonal eating and communal dining.
The physical spaces themselves are designed by globally acclaimed NYC design boutique Meyer Davis, meticulously orchestrated in a way to foster consciousness and collaboration. Studio and one bedroom apartments are available for flexible and extended-stay booking, and include a dining room, private bathroom, kitchen, workspace, 39’ flat-screen TV with full streaming and connectivity, as well as collaborative workspace, meeting and meditation rooms.
Both members and guests can book space.
The Assemblage was crowdfunded by individual backers around the world and Prodigy Network so far has raised $165M for the three spaces.
