Eindhoven Eight: New Dutch Architecture and Urbanism

Eindhoven Eight, an exhibition investigating Eindhoven’s contemporary architectural culture through the work of eight young practices is now on display at TU Eindhoven’s Department of the Built Environment until June 24. The exhibition presents a new breed of architects and urbanists emerging in Eindhoven, as the eight studios represent the broad array of approaches developing in the city.

The studios exhibited are: 12N (Fulco Treffers), Ateliereen Architecten (Maud Niereth-Van Banning & Bram Hurkens), Atelier to the Bone (Beerd Gieteling, Jeroen van Aerle & Philippe Rol), Houben/ van Mierlo (Jelle Houben & Bas van Mierlo), Open Architecture Office (Jan Schevers), UArchitects (Emile van Vugt & Misak Terzibasiyan), Wenink/ Holtkamp (Jan Peter Wenink & Ferdy Holtkamp), and Werkstatt (Niels Groeneveld & Raoul Vleugels).

Influenced by the particular context of a city that is redefining itself through design and technology, these eight practices are exploring new ways to create, collaborate, and realize architecture and urbanism. They engage architecture and urbanism at different scales, at different moments, with different tools, and different goals; blurring any traditional boundaries.

Combined, their work indicates a recalibration of the idea of architecture, one that is wider and more inclusive, where the problem of context, scale, and detail are inextricably linked to abstraction, communication and orchestration. Whilst the resulting work takes on a wide array of forms, shapes and spaces, it still shares certain material and conceptual affinities. This suggests the development of new productive methods and spatial sensibilities in Eindhoven’s architecture and urbanism, here organized around the themes; drive, client, idea, space, place and craft.

Beyond surveying the current state of new architecture and urbanism in Eindhoven, this exhibition also aims to question the way architecture is exhibited, whilst engaging both architectural insiders and the general public. Eindhoven Eight was curated and developed in the context of a master’s course at TU Eindhoven, but goes further by shaping itself outside the boundaries of the institution.
