Design a Pavilion
for the City of Light
On the Bloemfonteinstraat in the district Doornakkers in Eindhoven you will find a number of social organizations that will place a Call for Creation for their adjacent courtyard (the old playground) to design a unique pavilion, which can be used by the social organizations of the Bloemfonteinstraat, but also can become a unique meeting place for the residents of Doornakkers.
As a designer you can help to determine what the pavilion will look like. And the residents of the neighborhood are involved to express their preferences for the submitted pitches.
One of the social organizations involved is the Uit de Buurtfabriek. This is a workshop where people with a distance to the labor market, designers and makers work together to make beautiful custom furniture for companies, social organizations and individuals in Eindhoven. Uit de Buurtfabriek facilitates the co-creation of unique quality furniture in Eindhoven within a social work environment.
Next to Uit de Buurtfabriek you'll find clothing exchange studio Awesome, which is there for people with a small / or without a scholarship. The volunteers of Awesome work with received clothes that are hanging in the store and are pimped and recycled.
The conditions that this pavilion will have to meet will be detailed soon through the pitch requirements.
