Source 04 presents research and design proposals concerning the issue of drugrelated prostitution in Eindhoven, Holland. At the request of the City of Eindhoven, the Design Academy’s Master’s Degree Program, IM, researched a designated prostitution area in the Woensel West district and created alternatives. In 2003, to combat problems generated by drug-related street prostitution, the city established a tolerance zone or tippelzone. It helped. Public disturbances were reduced, care for prostitutes improved and the area became safer. The city, however, does not wish to continue facilitating prostitution. They also hope to offer the women other alternatives to help them escape their dependency on drugs and pimps. This requires creative and, most of all, unorthodox solutions. Source 04 includes research, essays and photographic documentation by visiting scholars, professors and student, of the resulting design proposals.
