12 quirky temporary structures made from mostly repurposed materials

Eindhoven has a reputation for being one of the world's most exciting design hubs, and we recently had the chance to experience why - firsthand. In its 14th iteration, Dutch Design Week saw the construction of numerous quirky structures, located where the old Philips factory used to be. Curated by HeyHeydeHaas , each temporary shelter was conceived by a different designer, architect or institution and built with sustainable resources, including repurposed shipping containers, scaffolding, inflatable structures and low-impact materials such as scrap wood and cork. Click through our exclusive photos to discover 'the house of the future', modern workshops, a Plug In City and more. Each creation with its own personality invites viewers to imagine a new future where the built environment and society live in creative harmony.
