The People’s Pavilion at Ketelhuisplein is a temporary pavilion by and for people: 100% borrowed.

During Dutch Design Week, the central meeting place for creative thinkers and do-ers from around the world will be the People's Pavilion. The building is a design of bureau SLA & Overtreders W. The designers have given a radical new impulse to the notion of a circular economy: the pavilion is made with 100% borrowed materials. Materials from suppliers and producers, but also from Eindhoven residents. Concrete and wooden beams, facade elements, glass roof, recycled plastic cladding: everything is borrowed for 9 days and will be returned to the owners after the DDW. All materials will remain unharmed. There are no screws, glue, drills or saws on the construction site. The People's Pavilion shows a new future for sustainable building architecture: a powerful design language with new collaborations and intelligent construction methods.

During DDW, the People’s Pavilion will be the venue for gatherings, lectures, openings, performances and concerts.
