Join the stage is the platform for dialogue between past - present and future of VDMA Eindhoven In the coming years, the whole area will be re-developed into a new part of the city, where people will live, work and recreate.

Together, NulZes and Bygg are designing the temporary stage of this big development, using the momentum in between, lost in transition, to accompany and question the impact on the local scale of an urban transformation.

Our temporary intervention in this inner courtyard introduces some elements of the final development such as the forest, but also creates a platform: a stage to give voices to local initiative in dialogue with the new plan. In this little forest we have placed a bar, The Vertical Gallery, 2 cabins in the wood, a cabin for the forest watcher and a light installation in the whole area. 

The lights are made from old highway philips lighting standing on simple construction steel bar. Those creature on long, thin legs and walking within the forest and the container bringing some light. All connected they can interact, synchronized and respond to their environment. Their sensors will detect your presence and bring you more light...
