us and the evoluon
Next Nature is a network of makers, thinkers, educators and supporters. With members in 44 countries, we are the international network for anyone interested in the debate on our future – in which biology and technology are fusing. Our headquarters is the Evoluon Spaceship in Eindhoven.
Next Nature is an organisation that aims to raise awareness about the impact of technology on our lives and the planet. Through exhibitions, educational and business programs, Next Nature makes possible futures tangible for a wide audience.

Organisation Next Nature
Our team consists of open-minded, curious, and optimistic people from different disciplines. Our ambassadors include the astronaut André Kuipers, experimental architecture professor Rachel Armstrong, and TV presenter Jason Silva. The core team works in Amsterdam and Eindhoven, with a network spanning the world.
The Evoluon, designed by architects Louis Kalff and Leo de Bever, used to be a forward-thinking technology museum from 1966 until it was closed by Philips in 1989 (despite public protests). Since then, it functioned as a conference center without public access. By the end of 2018, Foolen & Reijs purchased the building with the intention of reopening it to the public. Since the arrival of Next Nature in 2021, the building once again became accessible to the public at the end of that same year.
We are creating a meeting place and presentation venue that celebrates the wonderful world of technology, the ingenuity and creativity of design and innovation, and the ways in which humans and society are increasingly intertwined with technology. Together, we explore the potential for a more inclusive and sustainable world, one in which the concepts of "human" and "society" enter a new evolutionary phase.
