Lallau Céline

Department: Public Private

CHEMINER

WHAT
A walking route along Eindhoven’s industrial heritage, marked by urban installations on the exact location where the old factory chimneys used to stand.

WHY
How can cities keep track of their history when buildings get replaced one after the other? Céline Lallau has created subtle reminders of what once was, turning historical spots into meeting points for locals and tourists.

WHY
Céline proposes a partial reconstruction of vanished chimneys — creating their base, or part of it where new buildings have claimed the space. They serve as circular benches for a short rest. The interactive map in the middle has an augmented-reality code that shows the original chimney on your phone, reconnecting this era to the one before.

QUOTE
Eindhoven’s industrial history has more than just Philips.
