Found a pintrest wall on eindhoven. Interesting to see many different websites, but seems that for many locals the most cliche places and ‘monuments’ describe Eindhoven. Many also associate well with objects that they find during various art/design/cultural shows and exhibitions.

It claims to be the biggest design hub- what makes eindhoven a design hub?
_The places, the factories turned into design houses and workshop places, shops, the design academy, the philips design wing, Design Week, Van Abbe, glow Eindhoven, Tu/e, etc.
Two faces. city life. Participation. Material.

What is the difference between the function of a temporary monument or a permanent one? How will a line across few streets showing places in a fresh perspective serve any different purpose?
The Luminarie De Cagna is an imposing cathedral-like structure that was recently on display at the 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. The festival was host to almost 30 exhibitions including plenty of 3D projection mapping, fields of luminous flowers, and a glowing phone booth aquarium, however with 55,000 LEDs and towering 28 meters high theLuminarie De Cagna seems to have stolen the show.
