In Brainport Smart District we are experimenting with new construction, health, mobility, data and energy concepts. That is why BSD is partnered by the Eindhoven University of Technology and Tilburg University, and why we collaborate with knowledge institutions and why we are participating in projects that enable us to investigate our concepts.

Examples are the Eindhoven Engine, TU/e Innovation Space and the Urban Design Initiative. We also participate in ZonMw.


In Brainport Smart District several organisations are involved in a research project. Below some projects which are being researched on feasibility.

Urban vision

Visie on living

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.
