18 Septemberplein

Studio Fuksas as Architects

The ''18 Septemberplein'' is one of the major squares in the city of Eindhoven. The square is the connection between the central station area and the main shopping district of the city. The demand for 2000 parking places for bicycles together with the important logistical function of the square led to a design of an underground bicycle parking, leaving room for the movement of people on the square. Two cone-like shapes form the entrance to the bicycle parking under a central strip of ceramic tiles, fountains lights and glass elements embedded in the square floor.


At night the light elements together with the light coming through the glass elements from the parking, will create a tapestry of light.
