Involved with a large-scale project, exhibition, or installation, and seeking an audience and space? Showcase your work at one of Eindhoven’s most prominent squares during Dutch Design Week 2024, from October 19 to 27.

Open call

Dutch Design Week is excited to announce an open call for projects in public spaces. We are seeking substantial projects, sizable objects, major installations, or special presentations to land on prominent squares in Eindhoven, like Stadhuisplein, Markt, or Ketelhuisplein. Projects deserving a space and an audience like that of DDW! Past editions featured The Exploded View Beyond Building, People's Pavilion by Overtreders W and Bureau SLA and the Stoelendans by Waag Futurelab. The Solar Pavilion by Marjan van Aubel and V8 Architects also shone on Ketelhuisplein. DDW is searching for similar or entirely unique grand projects.
