During WOII several historical parts were destroyed and the following modern reconstruction replaced many buildings in the centre. Today, the face of Eindhoven is rapidly changing, showing a new sense of self-confidence. But old sites certainly aren't being forgotten. A unique amount of industrial heritage of which mainly former industrial Philips buildings, are converted and reused by up-and-coming sectors such as technology and design. Eindhoven is now a major technology research and educational hub with amongst others a large University of Technology. But it isn't just a city with high-tech activities. In the 2000s decade, the city emerged as the capital of Dutch industrial design. Due to the fame of Design Academy Eindhoven, dubbed `The School of Cool', Eindhoven has been able to grow in the design industry with such events as the annual Dutch Design Week � the largest design event in The Netherlands. Every October around 1500 international designers show their work, from disciplines such as industrial design, concept design, graphic design, textile & fashion, fooddesign � and ... architecture! partners Partners DDW Trespa Stad Eindhoven Design Co�peratie Brainport Sponsors Trespa Stad Eindhoven uw naam hier? uw logo hier?

The current station building was built in 1956 by design of architect Koen van der Gaast and resembles a Philips radio at that time. In the view of Van der Gaast a train station had to get a prominent role in the city compared to other transport systems. Not the human dimension was the starting point, but the urban space was the decisive factor in the measurements. Another striking aspect of his vision was that the station had to have absolutely no recreational function, it was only intended as a pedestrian space: the transition from one transport to another. The station is located in the district Fellenoord. At about 900 meters from the station lies the `Philips Stadion', PSV Stadium. On the city centre side of the station a statue was placed of Anton Philips, the father of Frits Philips. 2 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2) 1 1 DE BIJENKORF GIO PONTI, THEO BOOSTEN location function contributed by Eindhoven (1969) shopping centre archlab ADDRESS Piazza 1 5611 AE Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Mon: Tue-Thu: Fri: Sat: WEBSITE www.debijenkorf.nl/ eindhoven 11.00 10.00 10.00 09.30 13.00 18.00 21.00 18.00 For the de Bijenkorf fa�ade Gi� Ponti tested a little 3-dimensional tile coloured in different variants of green. A colour arranged with openings in the shape of stretched hexagons, also applied for the Concattedrale in Taranto and for the San Carlo hospital chapel in Milan. It is said that Ponti got his inspiration for this facade, while flying over The Netherlands, and looking at the water-lined green landschape below. Even though the Bijenkorf wanted only 3 layers, in the urban plan 4 layers was more fitting. Therefore the upper layer has hardly any volume, and is only facade. Up until now, an extension to the 4th floor has never been realized. 2 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1) | Giovanni Bellinvia (2) 2 1 PIAZZA SHOPPING MALL MASSIMILIANO AND DORIANA FUKSAS location function contributed by Eindhoven (2004) shopping centre, square Gemeente_Eindhoven ADDRESS Piazza 5611 AE Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is public! The existing seventies shopping centre has been redeveloped and enlarged. The project is situated in the post-war city centre of Eindhoven, next to the monumental Bijenkorf building by Gio Ponti. The public passage that connects the north part and the south of the Eindhoven city centre is articulated by a glass roof that extends over the square in front of the building. The original square Piazza was designed by Gio Ponti, with seating on the square of the Italian artist Negri. Part of it has now moved to the side of the Bijenkorf. Ventilating units of the basement were hidden in a artwork consisting of a set of stainless steel tubes, by Frans Gast. This has now been reinstated in the Henri Dunant Park. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 3 1 DE ADMIRANT ENTRANCE BUILDING MASSIMILIANO AND DORIANA FUKSAS location function contributed by Eindhoven (2010) shopping centre, cafe, office archlab ADDRESS 18 septemberplein 5611 Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Mon: Tue-Thu: Fri: Sat: WEBSITE www.admirant.nl 12.00 09.30 09.30 09.30 18.00 18.00 21.00 17.00 Following the definition of the Masterplan in 1998 for the centre of Eindhoven in Holland, studio Fuksas developed the four projects associated with it: the 18-Septemberplein, a square of 7.000 m� with an underground parking lot of 2.300m� for 1.700 bicycles, the Piazza Shopping Mall, a shopping centre covering approximately 20.000m� with 6.000m� of office space, the Media Market, a store for sales of electrical appliances and electronic equipment and the Admirant Entrance Building. The Admirant entrance building is at the same time part of a newly developed shopping area. Commercial spaces are located on the ground and first level and office spaces on level three and four (plus an additional technical level). 2 3 Photography: Moreno Maggi (1,3) | Rob H'art (2) 4 1 MASSIMILIANO AND DORIANA FUKSAS ARCHITECTURE OFFICE location field architect(s) Rome (Italy), Paris (France) architecture, urban planning, product design Massimiliano Fuksas, Doriana O.

SCHEFFER, VRENCKEN HOEN ARCHITECTEN location function contributed by Eindhoven (2008) housing, mixed-use development, renovation Robin ADDRESS Mathildelaan 1 5611 BD Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Restaurant Usine: Mon-Sun: 09.00 - 01.00 Apartments: these are not public! WEBSITE www.lichttoren.nl The Lichttoren (light tower) is actually the 7-sided tower on top of this building. First completed in 1920 by architects D. Roosenburg and L.S.P. Scheffer, it served as one of Philips' light bulb factories. The tower on top was used as a testing facility for the bulbs, until the 70s when Philips first started moving its production facilities away from the Netherlands. Finally, in 1998, Philips left the building, which it had used as an office. The redevelopment finally started in 2006, according to a plan that called for a several mixed functions. With these very diverse uses, the city of Eindhoven has aimed to use it to create a more urban atmosphere in its centre. The concrete structure, high ceilings, and large windows make it an icon, a symbol for Eindhoven's industrial past and as such it has been declared a monument. Trudo, the owner of the building, added several new parts to the building during its redevelopment, which are instantly recognisable. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 5 1 AWG ARCHITECTEN ARCHITECTURE OFFICE location field architect(s) Antwerpen (Belgium) urban planning, housing, utilitarian bOb Van Reeth, Christine de Ruijter, Filip Delanghe, Geert Driesen, Ilse Van Berendoncks, Jan Verrelst ADDRESS Paardenmarkt 85 b-2000 Antwerpen WEBSITE www.awg.be AWG stands for "Architecten Werk Groep", established in 1972 by b0b Van Reeth and re-established under the name awg architects in 2001 by b0b Van Reeth, Geert Driesen, Filip Delanghe, Christine de Ruijter, Ilse Van Berendoncks and Jan Verrelst. awg architects - also active in the Netherlands for the last 18 years � unites 34 architects and city planners, with varied education and training in order to create interdisciplinary, cooperative projects as one team. For awg architects, architecture is the pursuit of architecture. Architecture is about solving spatial problems through specific analyses, each of which is characterized by a particular approach. Initially, we explore every project by developing a mentality pertinent to each individual issue. Every project is in and of itself a force for creative exploration/ investigation. In other words, architecture is always about the particularity of a location, of its moment in time, of its nature. The spirit of a place lies in creative discovery of its concrete possibilities. 2 Photography: Niels Donckers (1) | AWG architecten (2) 5+ 1 WITTE DAME DIEDERENDIRRIX, D. ROOSENBURG location function contributed by Eindhoven (1997) culture, education, library, office Norbert_van_Onna ADDRESS Emmasingel 12 5600 HA Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is public! WEBSITE www.dewittedame.nl With the transformation of the Turin Lingotto factories in mind, a former factory of Philips designed by Dirk Roosenburg in 1928, was converted into a multifunctional building for design, art, knowledge and technology: the Witte Dame (White Lady). Public initiative saved the building from demolition. The unofficial monument has been conserved by using it for new functions, including the accommodation of the Design Academy, the main branch of the public library, and a design department of Philips Lighting. The biggest intervention is the transformation of the middle section. The central entrance, including a number of shared facilities, has been situated at an important point in the city's layout: on the axis of the route from the city centre via the Licht Square to the Philips Stadium. A crucial point in the renovation of the White Lady is that the building has been changed as little as possible. The look of the fa�ade and the way the floor areas are stacked have remained unchanged. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 6 1 HOUSING TOWER ADMIRANT DAM & PARTNERS ARCHITECTEN location function contributed by Eindhoven (2006) housing, office Gemeente_Eindhoven ADDRESS Emmasingel 5611 AZ Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public! Next to De Admirant (the former Philips tower) Dam & Partners designed this residential and office tower that marks the centre of Eindhoven like a large white sculpture. The way the building is situated in its environment excludes the incidence of 90� angles. The angled shape, glass corners and sloping roof still suggests a degree of slenderness, but the dense concrete fa�ade has yet again something rude. "In particular, the connection to the public area is a true shame. This building adds absolutely nothing to the experience of public space: a closed wall with an entrance as a mouse-hole." (text from jury rapport Dirk Roosenburg prize) 2 Photography: Norber van Onna (1,2) 7 1 REGENT VAN AKEN ARCHITECTEN location function contributed by Eindhoven (1999) commercial space, housing Robin ADDRESS De Regent 1 5611 HW Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public! De Regent was, in a sense, a pioneer for high-rise buildings in Eindhoven. During the design and construction process, it was the tallest building in Eindhoven, surpassing a Philips building that had been the number one for 35 years. Shortly after its completion, a number of other high rises appeared in Eindhoven, both in the centre and outlying neighbourhoods. Hence, it is no longer the tallest building, though its top floor `34' is still the highest floor number in Eindhoven. The plinth is home to commercial space. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 8 1 SILVERENBERG VAN DER LINDEN STEDENBOUW ARCHITECTUUR location function contributed by Eindhoven (2002) gallery Gemeente_Eindhoven ADDRESS Kleine Berg 79 5611 JT Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public! WEBSITE www.silverenberg.nl This gallery is situated along the Kleine Berg in area De Bergen, directly neighbouring the city centre. The street image is diverse with traditional as well as modern buildings. The binding aspect between these diverse buildings is the limited width. The mission was to create a two storey gallery on a former terrace lot of 25 square meters. The entrance had to be connected to the street and the first floor had to connect to the original residence of the owner/occupier. The original building was made in the 1920s and is symmetrical by design. The entire gallery radiates transparency. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 9 1 DYNAMO DIEDERENDIRRIX location function contributed by Eindhoven (2005) community centre, music theatre, sport boeboe ADDRESS Catharinaplein 21 5622 DE Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Mon-Thu 9.00 - 22.00 Fri: 9.00 - 2.00 Sat: 12.00 - 3.00 Sun: check website WEBSITE www.dynamo-eindhoven.nl Dynamo is a regional institution for youth welfare and organizes different activities like music, sports, workshops, and other cultural activities. It also offers information for young people on schooling, help with housing, financial administration support, finding a job, etc. The building has much to offer: a large pop music stage, a fitness centre, lounge-area, several bars, meeting space and information desks. All these functions together make it a very dense community-based spot in an urban setting. The volume is a composition of glass and concrete elements which have 12 different colour tones and opens up at the corner of 2 streets. This entrance leads to the central meeting hall, the atrium, which is at the same time one of the stages used for performances and acts. The large `urban window' gives pedestrians a view inside and invites them to join. Everyone can organize their own party, gathering, concert or sports-event themselves in this multifunctional building. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 10 1 MERCADO BUILDING JEANNE DEKKERS ARCHITECTUUR location function contributed by Eindhoven (2003) office Norbert_van_Onna ADDRESS Smalle Haven 109-111 5611 EH Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Mon-Fri: 08.30 - 17.00 Jo Coenen's master plan for the Smalle Haven area in Eindhoven included several Municipal Offices. The building exterior matches the diversity of the plan and connects its various components both visually and structurally. The heart of the building is a `city room': a partly roofed outdoor space that serves as the entrance vestibule. An arcade connects all of the adjacent buildings. The building exterior, with its vertical bond brick fa�ade, is simple and robust. The entrance, city garden and city room have transparent fa�ades. Vertical windows - floor to ceiling in the cockpits to the back - emphasize the verticality and give the fa�ades rhythm. The windows are pushed back and fit with stainless steel frames that add light and transparency to the fa�ades. Though the building does not look particularly uniform from the outside, it does on the inside. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 11 1 VESTEDA TOWER JO COENEN location function contributed by Eindhoven (2006) apartment, housing Robin ADDRESS Vestdijk 76 5611 CE Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public! WEBSITE www.vestedatoren.nl Completed in 2006, this tower refers back to the Flatiron building of 1902 with its distinct shape. One of the main differences being the diamond shape of the former, whereas the latter is more like a triangle. At 90 meters tall it is the fourth tallest building in Eindhoven. 23 Of its 27 floors above ground are occupied by two luxury apartments per floor, the top floor being home to a penthouse. The third floor is home to a health club and a guest house, while the bottom floors contain the main entrance and Vesteda gallery. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 12 1 MEDINA NEAVE BROWN location function contributed by Eindhoven (2003) commercial space, housing, office Robin ADDRESS Vestdijk 192 5611 CZ Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public! While Neave Brown is mostly known for his work in London, he also designed this structure in Eindhoven. The master plan for the Smalle Haven area designed by Jo Coenen, called for a high density low-rise residential structure at the foot of his Vesteda Tower. Neave Brown designed the Medina as an oasis of green and quiet in a hectic city; with two very distinct sides. There is the urban wall, which is 8 storeys high, faces the busy Vestdijk and is also home to commercial space at its base. The other side, on `t College is much lower, quiet and more like a residential street, although there is commercial space here, too. The terraces on this side form a transition from the busy city to the calm residential area. There is also a parking garage inside. Through balconies, terraces and patios, each home has its own outside space, many of which are adorned by hanging plants. In total there are 73 apartments, 260 parking spaces, and 2000m� of commercial space. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 13 1 DESIGN HOUSE TER HAAR VAN LING ARCHITECTEN, J. KRUGER location function contributed by Eindhoven (2007) exposition space, shop, renovation Gemeente_Eindhoven ADDRESS Stadhuisplein 3 5611 EM Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Tue-Sun: 11.00 - 17.30 WEBSITE www.designhuis.com This building was originally built as a district court in 1964. It marks perfectly the transition from traditional to modern thinking about architecture in Eindhoven, and is the link between the old and the new city hall. Architect J. Kruger modelled two volumes around an indoor space: a formal straight-front with offices and a building section with courtrooms and meeting rooms. The connection between these two parts is marked with deep cuts on both sides of the building. During the Dutch Design Week of 2007 the Design House officially opened its doors for the public. The former district court converted into a building which can be used as a shop and exposition space, offering changing exhibitions on modern design products. While the appearance of the building barely changed, the interior got a metamorphose to satisfy the requirements of a museum. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 14 1 YKSI DESIGN, EXPO AND SHOP DESIGN OFFICE location field designer(s) Eindhoven product design, exhibitions, shop Leonne Cuppen, Kees Heurkens, Eudard Sweep ADDRESS Stratumsedijk 47-49 5611 NC Eindhoven WEBSITE www.yksi.nl Yksi, based in Eindhoven consists of Leonne Cuppen, Kees Heurkens and Eduard Sweep, graduates of the Design Academy Eindhoven. Their cooperation spans almost 20 years and has made them a tightly-knit team. The Yksi team operates as a design office, organises exhibitions and runs a design shop both in the Designhuis (House of Design) and online. The Yksi designers are on the move all the time to develop their skills and search for new inspiration. For instance by participating in or visiting trade fairs and expos at home and abroad, travelling, teaching at art schools, participating in selection committees and organising events, seminars and exhibitions. Yksi was among the founding fathers of the Dutch Design Week and the Designhuis (House of Design) in Eindhoven and organised presentations all over The Netherlands and abroad, for example in Milan (Italy), Shanghai (China), Bratislava (Slovakia), Tallinn (Estonia) and Moscow (Russia). 2 3 Photography: Hans Morren (1,2) | Patrick Meis (3) 14+ 1 CITY HALL JAN A.VAN DER LAAN, ARCHITECTEN|EN|EN, BURO STAAL CHRISTENSEN location function contributed by Eindhoven (1969) government, office Gemeente_Eindhoven ADDRESS Stadhuisplein 10 5611 EM Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Mon-Fri: 10.00 - 17.00 WEBSITE www.eindhoven.nl J.A. van der Laan (brother of Dom van der Laan) wins in a 1938 competition for a new City Hall. The outbreak of the war did little right in the city hall plans. In 1939, however, the council and citizenry increasingly criticized the architecture of Van der Laan, it was not modern enough. Van der Laan also admitted that a 1939 plan did not fit in 1957, and made a new design. There have been mixed critiques on this work. Because of the sudden shift in his style, Van der Laan was more often attacked on his design integrity. In 2002 the town hall was totally renovated by architecten en|en and Staal/Christensen. By applying a large glass roof, one of the never-executed design variants of van der Laan, the courtyard garden, has returned in a new form. 2 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2) 15 1 RIETVELD BILLBOARD GERRIT RIETVELD location function contributed by Eindhoven (1962) art, exposition space, sculpture, busstop Norbert_van_Onna ADDRESS Wal 5611 Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is public! The city of Eindhoven gave Rietveld the contract to design a billboard for Eindhoven's neighbourhoods in 1962. It should inform residents about ongoing cultural events, musical performances and exhibitions. Rietveld designed a billboard with concrete roof, wall and floor. On the column posters of exhibitions, music and theater were pasted. On a horizontal white bar dates and locations were announced. On the back, the map of the area and the city, to see where the events were held. It was neglected and forgotten until 1989 when it rediscovered and moved to the City Hall. Now, every now and then, artists, architects, photographers, designers and other creative persons are invited to design some new promotion for the `billboard', and the image of this small building changes with the new activities in town. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 16 1 VAN ABBEMUSEUM ABEL CAHEN location function contributed by Eindhoven (2003) museum, renovation MI_MOA ADDRESS Bilderdijklaan 10 5611 NH Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Mon closed Tue-Wed 11.00 - 17.00 Thu 11.00 - 21.00 Fr-Sun 11.00 - 17.00 WEBSITE www.vanabbemuseum.nl The `new' Van Abbemuseum is comprised of the renovated landmark building by architect A.J. Kropholler, dating from 1936, and two new sections. Both the renovation and structural alterations to the older part of the museum as well as the new sections are by the Dutch architect Abel Cahen. He has succeeded in organically integrating the old building into a new and larger complex. Despite its monumental character, the new building maintains the human dimensions so characteristic of the former museum. Massive installations or sizeable exhibitions as well as smaller intimate projects - such as showings of prints and drawings - can all be presented thanks to the variety of the exhibition areas. Cahen's distinctive design makes a notable contribution to Dutch museum architecture. The museum also has a whole range of new facilities, created by the Belgian designer Maarten van Severen including an auditorium and an education centre, which will accommodate a wide spectrum of public events. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 17 1 JUST YOUR KIND OF THING JOHN K�RMELING location function contributed by Eindhoven (2006) art, bridge, pavilion MI_MOA ADDRESS Bilderdijklaan 10 5611 NH Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is public! WEBSITE www.vanabbemuseum.nl Since 8 April 2006, the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven is connected to the Stratumsedijk by way of a bridge shaped like a bright pink house. The bridge is designed and built by Eindhoven artist and architect John K�rmeling, commissioned by the Van Abbemuseum. This work of art � entitled `Echt iets voor u' � is the shortest covered bridge in the world.The bright pink house and bridge has the words `Echt iets voor u' (Just your kind of thing) on the roof top in in twinkling lights. It is a remarkable, inviting eye-catcher that makes the area behind the museum lively, attractive and characteristic, even at night. The bridge gives you direct access to the open-air caf� on the banks of the river Dommel. John K�rmeling is represented in the Van Abbemuseum collection with several works. He is also responsible for one of the rooms in Plug In, the new approach to presenting the museum's collection 2 3 Photography: Peter Cox, with courtesy of Van Abbemuseum (1,2,3) 18 1 EFFENAAR MVRDV, ANTHONY KLEINEPIER, BOB COPRAY location function contributed by Eindhoven (2005) restaurant, music theatre, culture, bar boeboe ADDRESS Catharinaplein 21 5622 DE Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Sun-Thu 11.00 - 24.00 Fri-Sat 11.00 - 4.00 WEBSITE www.effenaar.nl The Effenaar is one of several professional Pop Music venues in the Netherlands that have renewed their buildings, or, in this case built a new house for their programme. MVRDV got the assignment to make a bold, open-minded and alternative building. The interior design-duo Anthony Kleinepier and Bob Copray made the whole interior. They had to take care of several `hufterproof' (vandalism-proof) elements, like entrance desk, toilets, wardrobe and bars. Inside the rather heavilybuilt building and course finishing they placed these interior elements like individual objects or furniture. Many are coated with an epoxy top layer, and give them a touch-ability. The multidisciplinary Dutch design office Fabrique has made the new visual identity, a dynamic new house-style for publications like posters, flyers and the website. Also the signposts in interior and exterior are designed by Fabrique. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 19 1 BUSSTATION NECKERSPOEL ZWARTS & JANSMA ARCHITECTS, JUURLINK EN GELUK location function contributed by Eindhoven (1992) bus station, canopy Gemeente_Eindhoven ADDRESS Neckerspoel 1 5611 Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is public! Literally and figuratively an exciting design, which is much more related to the space around it than to the buses that are covered. This structure provides uniformity in relation to the trainstation. The busstation consists of 13 bus platform (A through M). Each bus platform has an electronic information sign which displays the line number and destination of two buses. There is a large canopy with benches where people can wait for their bus. At the main entrance of the station is a billboard with a map and departures of buses. These architects often work with special structures in public space, such as bridges, viaducts and stadiums. 2 Photography: Noud de Greef (1) | Oscar Zijlmans (2) | Ton Langenberg (3) 20 1 KENNEDY BUSINESS CENTER VAN AKEN ARCHITECTEN location function contributed by Eindhoven (2004) office Norbert_van_Onna ADDRESS Kennedyplein 200 5611 ZT Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Mon: 08.30 - 19.00 Tue-Fri: 08.30 - 17.00 This building is a landmark at the head of the JF Kennedylaan. It is an exciting construction of glass and steel. From the outside, the construction is noticeable because the walls are made of glass from floor to ceiling. The tension is further increased because the upper part of the tower is wider than the lower part. The fa�ade itself consists of a double skin: an outer skin of glass and then 60 inches wide ventilated cavity and finally the inner skin of double glazing. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 21 1 KENNISPOORT KOEN VAN VELSEN location function contributed by Eindhoven (2002) education, government, office, university Robin ADDRESS John F. Kennedylaan 2 5612 AB Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Mon-Fri: 08.30 - 17.00 The Kennispoort (Knowledge Gate) came to be through a collaboration between the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and the Eindhoven chamber of commerce, which it houses, in the south-west corner of the TU/e campus. The concept behind the seven storey building is that several cuts have been taken out of the volume. On the south-east side for instance, a cut was taken out of the building to emphasize the walking and biking route to the TU/e. Inside, spaces are organised around a two-storey high ground floor. Underneath is a parking garage. The fa�ade is covered in smooth brickwork, which was glazed, specially developed for this project. The architect spent a lot of attention to the details, which is apparent especially in the fa�ade and inside in the woodwork. At night, the building is lit up in various colours.

The original structure was built in 1956, but was in drastic need of updating when the faculty of architecture moved in. Renovation began in 2000 and was completed in 2001. Because it used to be occupied with laboratories and such, the ceilings are very high at 5,08m. This was untouched for the most part, except where the atrium was created and as a result more floor space was needed. A large staircase was added to the front of the building, which doubles as a lecture hall. The building was covered in clear and green silkscreened glass, much like the university library in Utrecht. The interior was also redone. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2) | Constantin Meyer (3) 23 1 DIEDERENDIRRIX ARCHITECTURAL OFFICE location fields architect(s) Eindhoven utilitarian, housing, urban, interior Paul Diederen, Bert Dirrix ADDRESS Dommelstraat 11 5611 CJ eindhoven WEBSITE www.diederendirrix.nl diederendirrix is an architectural office, situated in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, with extensive experience in the fields of utilitarian building, housing, urban planning, residences and interior. Because of a strong loyalty to the wishes and ideas of the client, diederendirrix looks for both an effective and an individualistic interpretation of the commission. Clarifying the complexity and the synthesis of contradictory interests constitute the core quality of our design approach. This research and interdisciplinary attitude results in inventive and striking buildings and architectural plans. Our work is mostly located in the urban centre, where high density is the main subject. In these area it is always about the transformation of the urban structure. Often the result is a combination of new buildings and the redevelopment of existing buildings. The designs show an interesting layering of different functions. Our work is expressive, subtly sculptural. Buildings are imagined from a clear convincing ground form. Concepts such as simplicity, compactness, with maximum visual power and clear urban design characterize our work.

WEBSITE www.phys.tue.nl Cascade is the laboratory building for the Faculty of Physics at the Technical University of Eindhoven. The building lies on the dividing line between the campus and a forest area. The structure functions as a terrace along the landscape. Special in this building are fa�ades that are visually very contrasting. Adjusted to their setting and the sun, the east and north fa�ades have a very open character, while the east and south fa�ades are more closed and outfitted with black masonry by own design. The openings in the fa�ade have white marble fins as sunscreens, which are horizontally placed in the south fa�ade and vertically in the west fa�ade for optimal sun blockage. In a second phase, a `Technology Building' was realised on the north side of the Cascade Laboratory. 2 Photography: Theo Uytenhaak (1,2,3) 24 1 INDIGO MAGENTA LAKERLOPEN DIEDERENDIRRIX location function contributed by Eindhoven (2006) atelier, housing Norbert_van_Onna ADDRESS Paulus Potterstraat 32 5613 KS Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public! At Lakerlopen's edge was a left-over space which successive urban development plans of the city had proposed as a suitable site for two large, autonomous blocks that differ from the adjoining garden village by their position and shape. Both are positioned at a right angle to the rectangular layout of the garden village. One of them points its long fa�ade more or less to the Tongerlesestraat, the other to the Paulus Potterstraat. Together these streets delineate the garden village on this side. Each of the two blocks contains 23 apartments. The massiveness of both volumes, evoked by their brick cladding, conceals the fact that they are essentially gallery-access flats. The galleries are hidden from view by the brick fa�ade with a different composition for each floor and aluminiumframed openings. The integrated sun blinds, and the balconies that appear to stick out of the brick fa�ades, enhance the buildings' sturdy character. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 25 1 PSV SOCCER STADIUM VAN DEN PAUWERT ARCHITECTEN, T. VAN AKEN ARCHITECTUUR location function contributed by Eindhoven (2000) football stadium Norbert_van_Onna ADDRESS Mathildelaan 81 5611BE Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is public! Philips Stadion is the 35.119 seater stadium of football club, PSV Eindhoven (Philips Sport Vereniging (Philips Sports Union), first inaugurated in 1913. Located in the Philipsdorp (`Philips village') and part of the Eindhoven borough of Strijp. The current design is made by Van den Pauwert architects, in 1987. In 2002 the PSV organization wanted to realize more seating and visiting supporters were placed in a different angle, not next to the PSV supporters. According to the architect T. van Aken decided to extend the stadium at the corners. He brought new face-defining elements, the pylons, which also provides a column free bearer for maximum visibility from the corners. One specific seat (Section D, Row 22, Seat 43) is kept permanently empty. This was the seat occupied by former Philips chairman Frits Philips as he chose not to use any of the VIP facilities and instead took his place in the crowd. After his death (at the age of 100) in 2005, his seat is kept empty as a tribute. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 26 1 NEW FELLENOORD TER HAAR VAN LING ARCHITECTEN location function contributed by Eindhoven (2005) dwellings Norbert_van_Onna ADDRESS Nieuw Fellenoord 40 5612 Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public!

Office outfitter Desque found accommodation in the `Klokgebouw' in the Strijp-S area in Eindhoven. This imposing, industrial listed building formerly housed the Philips factory. The main inspiration during the refurbishment was based on the transformation from production area to home base for a creative design and interior decorating company. The new interior blends naturally into the industrial environment. M+R decided on clean lines and sustainable materials. The striking concrete structure was bared and kept in view. The prominent entrance consists of a large empty space with a sculptural stairway. The stairs lead to an area specially designed for meetings, relaxing and consultations, which in turn seamlessly merges into an elevation, from where you have a splendid view of the furniture and design products in the Desque range. In this almost unspoilt industrial environment these products definitely come into their own. 2 3 Photography: Herman de Winter (1,2,3) 29 1 M+R INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE OFFICE location field architect(s) Eindhoven interior design Hans Mar�chal, Marie-Louise Rooijmans ADDRESS Aalsterweg 230 5644 RK Eindhoven WEBSITE www.mplusr.nl M+R interior architecture is an international operating office founded in 2000 by Hans Mar�chal and Marie-Louise Rooijmans. Our fields of activity often involve complex assignments such as converting and designing offices, airports, libraries, restaurants, hotels, theatres and shops. Among our design skills and core activities for building and interior architecture we are also involved with revitalizing existing buildings and monuments in particular. The architects from M+R determine the form and content of each design assignment on the basis of the programme of requirements. Creativity, functionality, sustainability and ergonomics are translated in a well thought-out manner into a unique final product with an identity of its own. The power of a strong design is vision, innovation and the quality of realization. At an early stage we are able to provide our clients with a good picture of the final result by means of our computer visualizations. We attach a lot of value to the integration of technology and its possibilities. Light architecture is also a speciality within the firm, seeing as light in particular makes an important contribution to the quality of life. 2 3 Photography: Herman de Winter - Privium Clublounge (1) | DRU Cultural Factory (2) | Bar Medium Hospitality Formula (3) 29+ 1 BAEKELANDPLEIN DIEDERENDIRRIX location function contributed by Eindhoven (2004) housing, market, office, police station diederendirrix ADDRESS Baekelandplein 1 5621 HH Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is public! Commissioned by the city council in conjunction with a project developer and a housing corporation, a very diverse programme has been realized in Woensel-West, a problem area in Eindhoven, consisting of fifty apartments, 3000 m2 of offices, studios, a market hall where stalls can be rented by the metre, a police station, and an official area for prostitution. On the Baekeland Square side, the exterior of the complex has been made hard and slick in order to block off the traffic on the ring road. Behind this smooth shell the complex opens up around a collective deck with parking space underneath. The prostitution area, a regulated version of activities that were already taking place here, is situated out of the way, with its back to the houses. Here, the studios are the buffer between this fringe of society and normal life. This mix of unlike functions and the way in which the complex stands out from its environment make the Baekeland Square a typical Eindhoven project. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1) | Arthur Bagen (2,3) 30 1 PHILIPS HEADQUARTERS LIAG ARCHITECTS location function contributed by Eindhoven (2005) office, renovation Thomas_Boegl ADDRESS Boschdijk 525 5621 JG Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public! WEBSITE www.philips.com The head office of Philips Electronics Netherlands was designed in 1965 by architects firm Roosenburg-Verhave-Luyt-de Longh (currently LIAG). The office floors are suspended on external suspension stays, which are anchored on enormous steel cross beams that translate the forces to the core of the building. The core is constructed of a central stabiliser core and two end cores, containing stairwells, lift shafts and vertical transport ducts. Philips chose LIAG for the renovation/redesign of the high-rise and a replacement building for the low-rise. The new building was placed like a glass envelope over these sections. What was previously exterior has now become interior. The lighting in/ around the building was given special attention. Openings in the roof are used to light up the base of the building. This has transformed the head office into a beacon light for Philips in the city of Eindhoven. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1) | Iemke Ruige (2) | Bastiaan Ingehousz (3) 31 1 LABORATORY FOR FOOD SAFETY AUTHORITY VERA YANOVSHTCHINSKY ARCHITECTEN location function contributed by Eindhoven (2003) functie laboratorium, office Gemeente_Eindhoven ADDRESS Veldmaarschalk Montgomerylaan 500 5612 BL Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public!

It monitors food and consumer products to safeguard public health and animal health and welfare. The Authority controls the whole production chain, from raw materials and processing aids to end products and consumption. Their building in Eindhoven is located on a corner and is part of an urban plan where the total block is seen as a monolith with courtyards. The program is divided into a laboratory and an office wing with a prominent entrance on the corner. The entrance hall is the functional and spatial connection between the laboratory and office wing. The voids and transparent walls give a transparent and open view to the different functions. The design of the fa�ades of the laboratory strengthens idea of a monolith. The closed, almost seamless green panelling on the fa�ade on the street highlights the special form. 2 3 Photography: Trespa International (1,2,3) 32 1 HOOG ELZENT APARTMENTS DIEDERENDIRRIX location function contributed by Eindhoven (2005) housing, renovation Gemeente_Eindhoven ADDRESS Knuvelderlaan 1-35 5611 LW Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public!

A number of corner houses in the surroundings have a similar kind of layout. The project of Hoog Elzent combines new buildings in the symmetry of the former gym and school building. The living area generally exists of detached villas and has a green appearance. The position of the two apartment buildings motivated by the support it gives to the symmetry axis and by the visual relation between gym- and school building. The area surrounding Hoog Elzent is semi-public with a certain kind of privacy within the courtyard between the old and new buildings. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 33 1 PARKTHEATER ARCHITECTEN|EN|EN location function contributed by Eindhoven (2006) theatre Norbert_van_Onna ADDRESS Elzentlaan 50 5615 CN Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is public! WEBSITE www.parktheater.nl Between 2005 and 2007 the theatre was completely renovated and extended with the new multifunctional Philips Hall. For the renovation and building the firm Architecten en I en was called in. The design for the multifunctional Philips Hall was inspired by the Teatro Central in Sevilla. This theatre was built on the occasion of the world exhibition in 1989. The former Stadsschouwburg Eindhoven was opened in 1964. Architects Cees Geenen and Leo Oskam had created a, for that time, unique building of rich resources and grandeur. In the 1990's the theatre needed a thorough evaluation, which resulted in a list of serious defects: Noise pollution from the Globetheater to the Grote Zaal and vice versa, poor visibility and limited d�cor possibilities in the Globetheater, high temperatures in the building, asbestos and an outdated air control system. In September 1995 the town council agreed on plans for the renovation and the construction of new buildings. 2 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2) 34 1 WATERTOWER QUIST WINTERMANS ARCHITECTEN location function contributed by Eindhoven (1970) industry, landmark Norbert_van_Onna ADDRESS Anton Coolenlaan Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public! Quist was asked to design a water tower with a capacity of 1500 m�. Quist decided to construct three white steel spherical water tanks each with a diameter of ten meters and a capacity of 500 m�. The three balls were placed on different heights on the steel structure, and the whole structure is about 44 metre high. Because Quist clearly wanted to show how the watertower was put together, the connection lines remained visible. In 2000, the proposal of the city of Eindhoven to transform the three white balls into three giant footballs - as part of the European Championship held in the Netherlands - led to great protests from the architect, and was called off. 2 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2) 35 1 SPILCENTRUM DE BENNEKEL KDV ARCHITECTUUR location function contributed by Eindhoven (2006) primary school, daycare centre Roderick ADDRESS Bennekelstraat 135 5654 DD Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Mon-Tue 08.25 - 15.00 Wed: 08.25 - 12.30 Thu-Fri: 08.25 - 15.00 WEBSITE www.spilcentrumde bennekel.nl Spilcentrum de Bennekel is located in the neighbourhood Bennekel, one of the fourty "krachtwijken" (strong neighbourhoods), selected by minister Ellen Vogelaar.

Together with the adjacent building WB, it's an iconic element on the campus for its central location and size 9-storeys. WY building dates from 1968 and was originally built as a laboratory. To future-proof the building a rigorous refurbishment was done. The laboratories are replaced by offices, combined with testing facilities and electronics labs. The building is in use as a multi-tenant building with multiple users both from Philips Research and abroad. Later extensions in the low-rise are removed. A new entrance is created: a thin and transparent volume. The entrance is linked to a whole new elevator core. The former elevator cores are replaced by new toilets. The fa�ades had some major surgery done, like opening the heads with large windows. In addition, the existing wooden frames were completely replaced by much thinner aluminium frames. 2 3 Photography: Ton Langenberg (1,2,3) 37 1 THE STRIP JHK ARCHITECTEN, EX INTERIORS location function contributed by Eindhoven (2004) auditorium, fitness club, horeca, restaurant Gemeente_Eindhoven ADDRESS Prof. Holstlaan 4 5656 AE Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public!

All social facilities are brought together in The Strip: three restaurants, two bars, a conference centre with auditorium, a range of shops and services, and the Campus Wellness Centre. The program is divided into three clusters, each in two layers, allowing phased implementation. Each cluster consists of two sections, which open a central strip, where the entrances are located. The two components are connected on the floor with an air bridge. The expressive curved roof has a wide overhanging, creating a dry footpath and bicycle path along the water to protect against the rain. The roof is designed as an insulated steel sheet, with a curved wooden ceiling underneath. 2 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2) 38 1 EVOLUON LOUIS CHRISTIAAN KALFF, L.

WEBSITE www.evoluon.com The Evoluon is a conference centre and former science museum erected by Philips in Eindhoven. The building is unique due to its very futuristic design, resembling a landed flying saucer. The building was based on an idea by Frits Philips, who originally made a sketch of the building on a paper napkin. Frits wanted to give the people of Eindhoven a beautiful and educational gift to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the company that bears his family name. Its concrete dome is 77m in diameter. In the 1960s and 70s it attracted large visitor numbers, since its interactive exhibitions were a new and unique concept at that time. But after several years of losing visitors and money, the original museum closed down in 1989 and the Evoluon was converted into a conference centre, opening in 1998. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 39 1 THE HANGAR DIEDERENDIRRIX location function contributed by Eindhoven (2009) community centre, primary school Gemeente_Eindhoven ADDRESS Meerbos 2-18 5658 LA Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is public! In the centre of Meerhoven stands a typical aircraft hangar, which, together with some other valuable industrial heritage buildings, keep the memory of the former airport Welschap alive. With the conversion to a complex of educational and recreational functions, this hangar is transformed into the vital cultural centre of the district. The covered plaza offers many possibilities for different uses. The presence of such elements into a new historic district is not common and is well exploited here. The new building is placed inside the hangars, together they form a natural whole. 2 3 Photography: Ton Langenberg (1,2,3) 40 1 BOSFAZANT HOUSING BEDAUX DE BROUWER location function contributed by Eindhoven (2007) housing Gemeente_Eindhoven ADDRESS Bosfazant 1-39, 89-107 5658 CA Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public! Green area `Bosrijk' is part of the large city expansion plan `Meerhoven' between Eindhoven, Veldhoven and Eindhoven Airport. It is located on former military grounds and houses many monumental trees. Within this area Bosfazant was been created. "The houses are clustered on the landscape, such as images in a sculpture." (Dirk Roosenburgprijs 2009) Each cluster is unique. And with each cluster the design for parking and private outdoor space is special to enhance the kinds of dwellings in the `Meerhoven' area. Each cluster is designed as a coherent whole and form a unity in form and material. 2 3 Photography: Ton Langenberg (1,2,3) 41 1 BOSRIJK DWELLINGS DE ARCHITEKTEN CIE. location function contributed by Eindhoven (2008) housing Gemeente_Eindhoven ADDRESS Bosgaai 2-48 5658 CL Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public!

In the green area between the villas reveal the buried trees in the patio, individual and collective parking. A special flagstone paving connects the villas. The construction of the villas features a split-like structure. This creates not only a large interior space development, but also connects the interior spaces to the new landscape in a surprising new way. A second terrace on the top floor confirms the universal fascinating forest views. 2 3 Photography: Ton Langenberg (1,2,3) 42 1 BOSRUITER HOUSING TARRA ARCHITECTUUR EN STEDEBOUW location function contributed by Eindhoven (2008) housing Gemeente_Eindhoven ADDRESS Bosruiter 2-66 5658 CM Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is not public! The urban layout of Bosrijk is based on living clustered in green areas. As a sculpture in a garden, each cluster in the public park presents itself individually. Such a structure requires a solution that guarantees the relationship between housing, private outdoor green, and collective green. The urban plan provides a number of sight lines along the canal, which must remain free. This creates small lots with a high density. The desire to save as much green and land-based living possible, has resulted in narrow but deep homes with a plot size of 4.3 x 17.5 m. Especially the cockpit in the middle, a sort of inverted skylight, stresses the relationship with the outside and provides extra light. The houses form a continuous horizontal raised plinth at ground level, which provides the distance between collective and private outdoor space. The partial deepening of the housing, the buildings are no higher than 4.5 meters, resembles a pavilion image. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 43 1 EINDHOVEN AIRPORT KCAP ARCHITECTS & PLANNERS, DE BEVER ARCHITECTEN, NACO location function contributed by Eindhoven (2005) airport Gemeente_Eindhoven ADDRESS Luchthavenweg 25 5657 EA Eindhoven OPENING HOURS Project is public! The development vision for Eindhoven Airport provides for its expansion and elaboration into a hub for mobility and business activity. The new terminal complex is an important marketing instrument. The section already realized has an elongated `plaza' with a floating roof, from which the various facilities can be reached. This building is easy to expand, so that an ensemble can evolve over the course of time. Its realization is to be phased, in line with economic developments, and the old terminal building will eventually be demolished. 2 3 Photography: Norbert van Onna (1,2,3) 44 1 NORBERT VAN ONNA ARCHITECTURAL AND FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHER Norbert van Onna (1955) is an architectural- and fine art photographer.
