More DDW nearby
Sectie C is in the middle of nowhere, but on your way back to the city (or the other way around), you'll pass the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). During DDW, three design teams will be working with six care institutions to find out how to make life easier for carers. The program is called: Who cares for the carers? As a visitor, you get a real-time glimpse of the design process of such a challenge.
Other fun things to do in the area
On your way back to the city center (and to the TU/e) you will almost pass by De Wasvenboerderij; it’s just a small detour. Here, you can enjoy delicious organic food in a beautiful green setting! It feels like being in the countryside. In other words: ideal for refueling before diving back into the design hustle and bustle.
