Eindhoven is the birthplace of the colossal Philips from 1891, it owes its important cultural legacy and the conviction that design and technology must serve the community to a glorious industrial past. But the city is full of surprises even
for those who aren’t field experts: the many former factories
and old barracks have been transformed into restaurants, multi-functional areas, boutiques, galleries, often keeping the old machinery and tools, allowing visitors to really touch the worth
of industrial archaeology. Let’s take a tour!

Architecture: Strijp-S, a district just 10 minutes from the centre, where artists, designers, stylists and musicians have been called to reuse the old buildings of the former radio equipment factory.
