The Evoluon



video
1969 Evoluon promofilm

I grew up near the city of Eindhoven, in the south of The Netherlands. It’s one of the bigger Dutch cities, and much of the it’s growth is due to electronics company Philips and Daf trucks.

Philips used to have their own science museum called Evoluon. Back in the 80’s, this was the ultimate school trip. The building was like an UFO /flying saucer which had landed in the city.
The Evoluon as a museum closed down in ’89. But I like this idea of outdated futuristic technology (I love retro stuff). And the Evoluon brings back memories. Also the Evoluon being a museum gives it something extra. So, right now I’m modeling some new stuff based on the Evoluon, in Blender 3D.

I found this pics and video’s online, also check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evoluon and http://www.dse.nl/~evoluon
