Today, it is exactly 10 years ago, that the ‘MU Bowl’ was launched. This participation project was an initiative by MU and Maurer United and a coorperation with the Eindhoven University of Technology. During a workshop, lead by Marc Maurer, twenty students (half of them dedicated skateboarders) designed the perfect wooden skatepool. Specialists like Jocko Weyland and Marcus Kamps were involved in educating the designers during the process. It resulted in Europe’s largest wooden skatebowl of that time and put Eindhoven on the map for skateboarders around the world. After some years the bowl was relocated at Area 51 at Eindhoven Strijp S.
