Eindhoven Architecture City
Eindhoven, the city of light and design, has experienced a stormy development and is now the centre of a ‘brainport’ focused on innovation, design and tech that ranks among the finest in the world. The city also has a lot to offer in terms of architecture: from the Evoluon to MVRDV's pop podium De Effenaar and from Kropholler’s Van Abbe Museum to the current large-scale redevelopment of the Philips factories. This handy-sized and up-to-date Eindhoven architecture guide zooms in on the city’s highlights: its newest high-profile buildings, illustrious icons and hidden gems. It also addresses urban development itself, the greenest spaces in the city and countless facts and anecdotes about Eindhoven and its many monuments. This guide describes Eindhoven’s 100 best buildings as well as its must-see sights: going out to dinner in an architectural setting and Strijp as a cultural and creative hub, home of the headquarters of designer Piet Hein Eek.
