- ICI Eindhoven: Future Downtown - Exhibition
All week, VDMA complex
What is the future of Brainport City Eindhoven? How do we want it to look like? How do we want to live in it? How can it become an international hotspot with local qualities? The future city is intense, green, accessible, recognizable, wonderful, for everyone! In particular the new, enlarged Downtown of Eindhoven. In his role as supervisor of the city center of Eindhoven, Winy Maas was asked to guide the vision and planning of the inner city.
This pavilion shows how we work on the upgrade of the city center. On the radical greenification. And on the intensification of urban life. The process and the state of affairs are illustrated in this pavilion and you are invited to add more and talk about your Future Downtown Eindhoven.
