Industrial Revolution The explosive growth of industry in the region and the subsequent housing needs of workers called for radical changes in administration Cheap land, cheap labor and the existence of pre-industrial homesourcing (huisnijverheid in Dutch) made Eindhoven an attractive area for the developing industries which were being stimulated by the government of King William I.

Industrialization brought population growth to Eindhoven. At the establishment of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in 1815, Eindhoven had 2.310 inhabitants. By 1920, it was 47.946; by 1925 it was 63.870 and in 1935 that had ballooned to 103.030.[2] The explosive growth of industry in the region and the subsequent housing needs of workers called for radical changes in administration, as the City of Eindhoven was still confined to its medieval moat city limits. In 1920, the five neighbouringmunicipalities of Woensel (to the north), Tongelre (northeast and east), Stratum (southeast), Gestel en Blaarthem (southwest) and Strijp (west), which already bore the brunt of the housing needs and related problems, were incorporated into the new Groot-Eindhoven ("Greater Eindhoven") municipality. The prefix "Groot-" was later dropped. After the incorporation of 1920, the five former municipalities became districts of the Municipality of Eindhoven, with Eindhoven-Centrum (the City proper) forming the sixth. Since then, an additional seventh district has been formed by dividing the largest district, that of Woensel, into WoenselZuid and Woensel-Noord. The early 20th century saw additions in technical industry with the advent of car and truck manufacturing company Van Doorne's Automobiel Fabriek (DAF) and the subsequent shift towards electronics and engineering, with the traditional tobacco and textile industries waning and finally disappearing in the 1970s.

People of Eindhoven (during World War II) watching Allied forces entering the city following its liberation fromAxis forces on 19 September 1944. Large-scale air raids in World War II, including the preliminary bombing during Operation Market Garden to aid the US 101st Airborne Division paratroopers in securing the bridges in and around the town on 18 September 1944, destroyed large parts of the city. The reconstruction that followed left very little historical remains and the post-war reconstruction period saw drastic renovation plans in highrise style, some of which were implemented. At the time, there was little regard for historicalheritage; in the 1960s, a new city hall was built and its neo-gothic predecessor (1867) demolished to make way for a plannedarterial road that never materialised. The 1970s, 1980s and 1990s saw large-scale housing developments in the districts of Woensel-Zuid and WoenselNoord, making Eindhoven the fifth-largest city in the Netherlands. At the start of the 21st century, a whole new housing developmentcalled Meerhoven was constructed at the site of the old airport of Welschap, west of Eindhoven. The airport itself, now calledEindhoven Airport, had moved earlier to a new location, paving the way for much needed new houses. Meerhoven is part of the Strijp district and partially lies on lands annexed from the municipality of Veldhoven. In the 2000s decade, Eindhoven emerged as the capital of Dutch industrial design. The Design Academy Eindhoven has produced major Dutch designers, such as Maarten Baas, Marcel Wanders, Richard Hutten, Jurgen Bey, and Hella Jongerius. The school also has a strong affiliation with droog design. In 2003, Time Magazine called the Academy, "The School of Cool." Due to the fame of the D.A.E, Eindhoven has been able to grow in the design industry with such events as the Dutch Design Week, that takes place every October. While most of Philips' industries have moved out, the Philips Design Bureau is still in Eindhoven.

Re: Move to Eindhoven? The reason I left is because I felt I would never fit in and I got bored of it. My feeling was you could have a very nice existence in Eindhoven but I would not call it life. As you have your family then I'm sure this may well be a different story for you. There is quite a transient expat community so you can get to know people but they do come and go. The one thing that is good about Eindhoven is the ability to just drive to another country without a ferry or a plane.

Construction The design of a city determines how its residents use it.

Urban designers and architects can foster physical activity by designing spaces and streets that encourage walking, bicycling, and other forms of active transportation and recreation. Active urban design entails several strategies. Recent research has demonstrated that a diverse mix of land uses, a well connected street system, and a good public transit system all tend to increase physical activity among city residents. Designers can make active recreation opportunities more accessible to children and their families through the organization and location of parks, playgrounds, and plazas.

Social Network Autonomous way of developing new tribes in the city, where participants play different roles to form a network of trust.

“ A person must feel personally safe and secure on the street among all these strangers " ‘... the streets of a city must do most of the job of handling strangers, for this is where strangers, they must protect the many, many peaceable and well-meaning strangers who use them ensuring their safety too as they pass through.’ (Jacobs 1961:45) ‘... so that they can again become livable and controlled not bu police but by a community of people sharing a common terrain.’

PLAYGROUND

There should be some points like the crystalliztion poinrs to gather people, and as the joint of a coomunity.

The playgrounds is as the smallest stitch in the urban fabric, one that would ensure its cohesion. Playground have a specific strength in connecting people to a places. This social connection gives identity to public space. - Ground-up City. Play as a design tool.

When we provide this two kinds of spaces for people to interavtive with each other, social network will make those places hard to break and enter in.

Practice 1.

Reduce Lay out the spaces of a building so that they create a sequence which begins with the entrance and the most public parts of the building, then leads into the slightly more private areas, and finally to the most private domains. Cut down the number of communities in a certain area, replacing them in public spaces.

27

Mini-neighborhood The subdivision of a community into minineighborhoods is intended to encourage the interaction of neighbors. Parents will watch their children playing in the now quiet streets and get to know each other. They will no longer feel locked up in their houses, facing the world alone. Tensions between renters and property owners, and the concern over incivilities, will likely also diminish as both parties living on the same closed street come to know each other through greater association and are able to develop standards of mutually acceptable behavior together.

Identifiable Neighnorhood Help people to define the neighborhoods they live in, not more than 300 yards across, with no more than 400 or 500 inhabitants. In existing cities, encourage local groups to organize themselves to form such neighborhoods. Give the neighborhoods some degree of autonomy as far as taxes and land controls are concerned.

In the process of mastering familiar situations and learning to copy the new ones, their intelligence and personality grow, as well as their bodies. The environment for play must be rich in experience, and it must be, to a significant extent, under the control of the children. It must allow each children to exercise choice and to grow, safety, at his own rate.

of compulsory schooling in a fixed place, work in piecemeal ways to decentralize the process of learning and enrich it through contact with many places and people all over the city: workshops, teachers at home or walking through the city, professionals willing to take on the young as helpers, older children teaching younger children, museums, youth groups traveling, scholarly seminars, industrial workshops, old people, and so on. Conceive of all these situations as forming the backbone of the learning process; survey all these situations, describe them, and publish them as the city's "curriculum"; then let students, children, their families and neighborhoods weave together for themselves the situations that comprise their "school" paying as they go with standard vouchers, raised by community tax.

All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned. Maker Faire is primarily designed to be forward-looking, showcasing makers who are exploring new forms and new technologies. But it’s not just for the novel in technical fields; Maker Faire features innovation and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.
