Members of Parliament visit BSD

On Monday 28 January a number of members of the Lower House visited Brainport Smart District. Paul Smeulders, formerly alderman in Helmond and currently Member of Parliament for Groenlinks, was one of them. Elphi Nelissen, who alongside Paul Smeulders was one of the initiators of the new smart district in Brandevoort in Helmond, was also present. In the morning they discussed the plans for Brainport Smart District and then got into electric cars for a tour of the as yet unbuilt area of Brandevoort. In the afternoon the MPs met a number of entrepreneurs who will start projects in the area, as well as a prospective resident of the new district.

Residents draw up joint plan for forty plots

In the autumn of 2018 we started looking for our first residents by calling for DIY plot pioneers to come forward. In this first ‘living lab’ 31 households are currently co-creating the first BSD district. They have found a location where they want to live together. The size of the plots is matched to the personal and shared (living) wishes of the future group of residents and their budgets. The plots project offers future residents a great deal of freedom, but we also expect them to take responsibility. The residents themselves are the initiators and therefore responsible for the realisation of their individual .collective dream spaces. This means they will have to think about and deal with water storage, energy-generating homes and public or shared green spaces. Watch our video

The urban vision developed by UNStudio features a number of strips running from north to south that divide the area into several zones, each with a different building density. Shared facilities can be created in the district, such as kitchens, gardens, reading rooms and gyms. There will also be a mix of residential and work, with decentralised business space with offices and shared work spaces aimed at innovative collaborations. In the heart of the district will be a park of some 12 hectares with gardens, natural landscape and sports grounds. The park will be collectively owned by the users: everybody can become a member. At the fringes of the districts there will be 80 hectares for growing food (high-tech agriculture), water storage, nature and energy generation.

Ouderen, voornamelijk 65 plussers, trainen in groepsverband bij een sportschool in Wassenaar 10 mei 2017. Steeds meer ouderen vinden hun weg naar een fitnesscentrum. Bewegen voor ouderen in de vorm van krachttraining – waar nodig volgens een individueel aangepast programma en onder begeleiding – kan er voor zorgen dat ouderen geen spieren meer verliezen, maar juist sterker en stabieler worden. Resultaat van goede krachttraining is dat men fit en vitaal blijft en ‘krakkemikkigheid’ en ‘fragiliteit’ buiten de deur houdt.

Subsidy project ZonMw

How can a district encourage its residents – who have different backgrounds and abilities – mentally and physically to maintain and/or improve their health? In search of an environmentally focused approach to healthy districts, a consortium of eight partners led by professor  M. Mohammadi of Eindhoven University of Technology got to work to develop a knowledge agenda for ‘Space for Health’. This approach will be applied in the new part of Brandevoort, in Brainport Smart District.

TU/e students collaborating in ‘team CASA’ are designing and developing a house that will be constructed as a concept in Brandevoort, as a BSD example. CASA stands for Comfortable, Affordable and Sustainable Alternative for Housing in the Netherlands. In September/October 2019 the house, which contains three units, will be built in a short time in the new part of Brandevoort, the district that will be created following BSD principles, which the house of the students is fully compliant with.
