Urban CampScape Pops Up At The Dutch Design Week

Tomorrow is the kick-off of this year’s Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. Planning to visit the event but don’t know where to stay? The Urban CampScape offers you a place to sleep!

For the occasion of the design week, an urban campside will pop up under a fly-over in the middle of the city’s Strijp-S district. This former industrial site of Philips has transformed over the years into Eindhoven’s creative district. Once known as Philips’ ‘Forbidden City’ where many (electronic) inventions were made, Strijp-S now offers a place for Dutch Design in the week of 20-28 October.

The initiators of the Urban CampScape aim to research the function of the neglected space under the fly-over as a ‘Green Corridor’ — a node to connect the city to its green surroundings. Therefore the Urban CampScape will not only be a place to sleep during the DDW, but will also offer a temporary cultural program about co-creation and durability. The program includes guerrilla gardening workshops, an exhibition about the Green Corridor, breakfast with products from the Philips Fruit Garden, bicycle tours and much more.
