Plug in City 2.0

Plug in City 2.0

Plug-in-City is a temporary village, in the middle of Strijp-S, Eindhoven, that functions as a creative living lab, workshop, event space & cultural center. Plug-in-City is organized and inhabited by a collective of creative professionals, such as designers, architects, artists and other individuals, who we all call “pluggers”. Through the use of containers, old windows, solar panels and other second-hand materials, this small “city” is built on the principles of Circular Economy, for which it received the 2017 ABN-Amro Circular Economy Award.

Plug in City was established in 2014, with the concept initiated by Trudo and the space constructed by Bygg Architecture. It all started with Het Glaspaviljoen – an event space for the Strijp-s community. Over time, Plug-in-City was joined by artists and designers, which significantly broadened our scope and exploration of a variety of creative fields, from music and gardening to fashion and product design. The result of our collaboration and individual work are continuously being showcased during the Dutch Design week.

2018 brought about an opportunity for us to re-develop and upgrade this project into what we call “Plug-in-City 2.0”. We worked on a new design that emphasizes the vision of PiC even more: using co-creation for making this space an inspiring creative melting pot in Eindhoven.

Plug in City 2.0

Plug-in-City is een tijdelijke dorp, te midden van Strijp-S, Eindhoven, dat functioneert als een creatief living lab, workshop, evenementenruimte & cultureel centrum.

Naast te worden gebruikt als living lab en workshop door de “pluggers”, fungeert de ruimte ook als een culturele ontmoetingsplaats voor de Gemeenschap van Strijp-S, waar wij regelmatig concerten, workshops, gesprekken en allerlei culturele avonden organiseren.

2018 bracht ons de kans om dit project op een hoger plan te brengen en te herontwikkelen tot wat wij “Plug-in-City 2.0” noemen. We werkten aan een nieuw ontwerp dat de visie van PiC nog meer benadrukt: door co-creatie deze ruimte tot een inspirerende creatieve smeltkroes maken in Eindhoven.
