EYE welcomes you in the Netherlands!

Mark your agenda, EYE@Eindhoven19 is coming up! We look forward to welcoming you to Eindhoven, the Netherlands, from 10-12 May 2019 for the 25th anniversary of EYE. Eindhoven is a city in the south of the Netherlands. Known for being a technology and design hub, Eindhoven is the perfect spot for another great edition of a European Young Engineers conference.

To give you the opportunity to get to know typical Dutch engineering we provide you with 3 tracks for this conference.

Over 200 trucks per day are manufactured in Eindhoven, the Netherlands has a strong innovative automotive industry. For this track the exploration day will be held at the headquarters and main production plant of DAF Trucks! This central question for this track will be, the truck of 2050. How will it look like? What features will it have? How will it impact our society?

Dutch people have water in their genes, being their friend and foe. Having three major rivers (the Rhine, the Meuse and the Scheldt) running through our country and relatively long coastline (Wadden sea/North Sea) the Netherlands is connected to water everywhere you look. Due to this landscape the Dutch are well know for our water management skills. Some of the world’s best engineering firms in the field of dredging, land reclamation, coastal engineering and other water technology areas can be found in the Netherlands. For the exploration day one of these leading companies will be visited.

It is remarkable that Dutch companies past years have been able to compete globally in manufacturing despite high costs due to extensive regulations, labour and facilities. One of the reasons why can be found in high tech industry around Eindhoven. To differentiate on the global market manufacturing companies have focused on the volatile development and flexible production of high complexity systems that achieve high end performance. Thanks to an ecosystem raised on the foundations of the former Philips imperium tremendous economic growth has taken place and is still going strong. Subscribe to the High Tech track to find out all about it!

The preliminary agenda below will give you an overview of the planned activities. It is subject to frequent changes while we confirm specific workshops and speakers.

Forest cities: the radical plan to save China from air pollution

By Anđela Bogdan, MSc.CE (EYE-HR)

Perhaps the most famous name in green architecture, architect Stefano Boeri has set his sights on a new market: Asia. The renowned designer of Milan’s Bosco Verticale will bring a similar project to the eastern Chinese city of Nanjing.

Given growing concerns over air quality in China, Boeri’s creation serves a particularly practical purpose in Nanjing’s densely populated Pukou district. The idea is simple: The two greenery-laden towers absorb ambient carbon dioxide while simultaneously introducing oxygen into the surrounding air. Preliminary estimates suggest that the building will be able to absorb some 25 tons of CO2 each year and generate 60 kilograms of oxygen per day. This is all thanks to the 1,100 trees and 2,500 hanging plants affixed to each tower’s façade.

The buildings, which will be the first of their kind in Asia, are mixed-use in every sense. The smaller of the two is already designated as a Hyatt hotel, while the larger is set to house a museum, a rooftop club, and even an architecture school dedicated to sustainable design. Slated for completion in 2018, the project will serve as a prototype for Boeri’s designs in other pollution-threatened Chinese cities.

The Forest City

Boeri’s ultimate goal is to create an entire Forest City that will become a reality in Liuzhou by 2020.

The Master Plan by Stefano Boeri Architetti for a new green city that fights air pollution is now under construction in China. The Liuzhou Forest City is commissioned by Liuzhou Municipality Urban Planning.

A city where offices, houses, hotels, hospitals and schools are entirely covered by plants and trees.

Once completed, the new city will host 30,000 people, absorb almost 10,000 tons of CO2 and 57 tons of pollutants per year and produce approximately 900 tons of oxygen.

Liuzhou Forest City will be built in the north of Liuzhou, in the mountain area of Guangxi, in the southern part of China; in an area that covers 175 hectares along the Liujiang river.

 

The new green city, entirely wired, will be connected to Liuzhou through a fast rail line used by electric cars and will host various residential areas, commercial and recreational spaces, two schools and a hospital.

Liuzhou Forest City will have all the characteristics of an energy self-sufficient urban establishment: geothermal energy for interior air-conditioning and solar panels over the roofs for collecting renewable energy.

 

 

The great innovation of Stefano Boeri Architetti’s project is the presence of plants and trees over every building, of all sizes and functions.

Liuzhou Forest City will host in total 40,000 trees and almost 1 million plants of over 100 species. The diffusion of plants, not only in the parks and gardens or along the streets, but also over building facades, will allow the energy self-sufficient city to contribute to improve the air quality (absorbing both CO2 and fine dust of 57 tons per year), to decrease the average air temperature, to create noise barriers and to improve the biodiversity of living species, generating the habitat for birds, insects and small animals that inhabit the Liuzhou territory.

 

For the first time in China and in the world, an innovative urban settlement will combine the challenge for energy self-sufficiency and for the use of renewable energy with the challenge to increase biodiversity and to effectively reduce air pollution in urban areas – which is really critical for present-day China – thanks to the multiplication of vegetable and biological urban surfaces.
