"Designing with nature

in the city of Eindhoven"


Veerle Roijackers, November 2018


Eindhoven, like all cities in the Netherlands, has to learn how to cope with climate change. The public space in the city needs to adapt to become climate adaptive. One way to do this is with the help of 'Nature-Based Solutions': design actions inspired by and based on nature. To show the municipality and the citizens of Eindhoven what this can look like in practice, I made this inspiration-book. It explains different kinds of Nature-Based Solutions and shows ways in which these are already (partly) applied in the city. When designers and planners are inspired by these examples, we can work towards a more future-proof Eindhoven.
