Dutch Design Week 1

These buildings were acquired by Philips in 1929. In the 1970s, they were transformed into PMF, or the Plastic and metal factories. In recent years, they have redeveloped and the former factory halls of the Klokgebouw at the Strijp-S of Eindhoven have been converted into expo space. They are an icon creativity and entrepreneurial efforts. They were the site of the Dutch Design Week 2015.

You have made it into a very interesting industriscape, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Ray. It did look rather interesting.

Jolie géométrie pour cette vue industrielle.
Ayush Basu: Il semble bon, n'est pas?
Thank you, Martine. The geometry is indeed attractive, isn't it?
That is a terrific shooting angle.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Michael. All I had to do was go up the ladder.
A very impressive perspective Ayush!
Ayush Basu: I agree, Richard. All I had to do was get up here.

There is nothing wrong with the re-invention of buildings Ayush. I am intrigued by the green box with yellow keys
Ayush Basu: They were part of the design installations, Chris.
As I often say, Ayush, "Leave it to the Dutch." smile I especially like the vanishing point perspective here.
Ayush Basu: I was trying to go for that, Ginnie. Thank you for the comment. Eindhoven is having something of a resurgence in design interest.

A picture to gladden the heart of Larry (and Chad!)
Ayush Basu: I would imagine so, Lisl. Thank you.

Very industrial and those winding keys draw my attention.
Ayush Basu: They were part of the installation, Louis. I suppose they were symbols of unlocking and unrestrained thinking.
Nice to see the added planters they do help to soften the lines
Ayush Basu: Nicely put, Martin. I bet they thought exactly along those lines when implementing the plants.
So in reality these buildings are nearly 90 years old but look more modern in design than that.
Ayush Basu: Probably more, Brian. I could not find more on what was happening here pre-Philips. But they do look modern comparatively.
It is good to re-use buildings rather than simply destroy them. But what are those keys??
Ayush Basu: I agree. They were part of the installation, I suppose, to denote unrestrained, unlocked thinking, Bill.
Quite a piece of industrial history!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Tom. It was a fascinating day spent there.

a fascinating industryscape!
Ayush Basu: The interiors were also rather fascinating, Philine. More to follow in the coming days.

Love all the play of lines and pipes here, Ayush. My dad use to work for Philips for years and he developed, 'printed wire' and he was part of telecommunications between France and The Netherlands..
Ayush Basu: Wow, that is quite something, to be involved in something that is path breaking and the first of a kind, Astrid.
That sounds like very practical progress Ayush.
Ayush Basu: And it is always a big hit among the educational institutes as well, Chad.

Interesting 'wind-up' keys in yellow on the left. Any idea what they were?
Ayush Basu: They were part of the installation, I suppose, to denote unrestrained, unlocked thinking.
Lots happening, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: And we are going to step inside soon, Frank.

Good to see old buildings getting new life. Gutter ridge would be pleased with this view no doubt.
Ayush Basu: He did express his pleasure to see the practical use of this space, Alan.

Wonderful perspective. I love the way the plants contrast with the hard, metallic lines.
Ayush Basu: I noticed and liked them too, Beth.
Such a fun place to be!
Ayush Basu: Quite a lot of it indoors too, LC.
Wow - isn't that crazy!
Ayush Basu: We will just have to see what else materializes here further, Elizabeth.
WOW! The angles and lines in the photograph are perfect. They leave me exploring your image to find all the unseen things that haven't initially drawn the eye...
Ayush Basu: You are indeed very observant, CP. To be honest, I myself stood here for a fair while looking all around and enjoying the view.

impressive i must say, but the dutch are quite innovative from what i have seen
Ayush Basu: I think they have a different way to approach their problems, Elaine. Thank you for your input.
this looks interesting smile
