The Adidas Brand Center is made up of 12 "Moment Areas"

Spaced out around the Adidas Brand Center will be what the brand calls "Moment Areas"—12 of them, to be exact. These may be decorative spaces for lounging or taking photos, areas for specific types of clothing and services, or even thoughtful displays on Adidas' advocacies as a brand.

You could liken the process of exploring the Adidas Brand Center for the first time to that of walking into a very deep cave—if the cave was well-lit and filled with activewear, that is. But what we mean is, the space is structured to feel as though you're going through a long, winding, and seemingly unending tunnel. Each time you think you've come to the end, you'll find that there's still more to go. And as you trudge through the Adidas Brand Center's snaking walkways, each turn will treat you to a new space, each made distinct with its decor and displays. Those spaces are the Moment Areas. At certain points, you may not be able to tell where one starts and another ends, but don't worry about it. Just enjoy the exploration.

Despite how large the space is, we guarantee its thoughtfully designed sructure will keep you from getting lost—and the Moment Areas will be  your guiding force as you make your way through the store.

Here are a few of the Moment Areas you should check out:

The store highlights Adidas' dedication to sustainability

The Adidas Brand Center will be home to what's been dubbed the Sustainability Ramp, which the sportswear manufacturer describes as the store's "pièce de résistance" due to the fact that it represents their primary advocacy. The ramp is also one of the store's Moment Areas, but out of all of 12, it's the biggest and most eye-caching.

The tunnel-like space is made entirely out of rattan handwoven by the Argao weavers from Visayas. As you walk down the ramp, you'll see it's filled with screens and displays that showcase the issue of marine plastic pollution. The immersive visuals are a Adidas' way of encouraging conversations about sustainability and our capacity to enact change.
