Eindhoven

Two Tourist tips: the Philips Museum in Eindhoven, and the Hieronymus Bosch Exhibit in ’s-Hertogenbosch (half an hour drive from EindHoven)

About the 'Evoluon'

  • Address and Phone: Noord Brabantlaan 1A, 5652 LA Eindhoven, +31 (0)40 250 46 00
  • History: The Evoluon is a conference center and former science museum erected by the electronics and electrical company Philips at Eindhoven in the Netherlands in 1966. Since its construction, it has become a landmark and a symbol for the city.
    The building is unique due to its very futuristic design, resembling a landed flying saucer. It was designed by architects Leo de Bever and Louis Christiaan Kalff, while the exhibition it housed was conceived by James Gardner. De Bever and Kalff only got two demands for the design of the building, it had to be 'spectacular' and it had to be possible to hold exhibitions in the building.
  • Facts: Its concrete dome is 77 meters (253 ft) in diameter and is held in place by 169 kilometers (105 mi) of reinforcing steel bars.
