Design city Eindhoven

Brainport* designers Joost van Bleiswijk, Piet Hein Eek and Maarten Baas have been invited by housing corporation Trudo to co-develop an architectural project at Strijp-S in Eindhoven. The old industrial and renovated factory building on this former Philips production area needed a contrast. Trudo asked the designers to create a more personal and ‘Kashba’ atmosphere in the area that currently consists of large concrete buildings, large-scale renovations and new buildings.

The designers were asked to create a new structural plan and new architecture on different levels for a 55m x55m area. Each designer will be responsible for his own part within the project and the three independent segments will eventually result into one large project, in which each designer’s individual style will strongly be visible.

The designers are now in the final phase of the structural definition, and soon will incorporate their individual architectural designs. As this project is in full progress, there is a unique opportunity to follow this spectacular project until the unveiling in 2014.
