Book launch DIY Klarenstraat - 20 July, 2017

Book launch DIY Klarenstraat - 20 July, 2017

We would like to ask your attention for the book launch of DIY Klarenstraat. A new perspective on the post-war social housing block

The influential architecture critic and professor emiritus Vincent van Rossem considers the U.J. Klarenstraat to be 'the future of urban renewal in Amsterdam'. He is not the only one with this opinion. The very first Do It Yourself walk-up apartment block was nominated for multiple awards. This book is a helping hand to anyone dealing with the transformation of existing real estate, in particular the post-war social housing block. 

Edited by Patricia van Ulzen, Rufus de Vries and Antoin Buissink. With text contributions by Sander Gelinck, Arjan Gooijer, Frans van Hulten, Vincent van Rossem, Maaike Schravesande and Patricia van Ulzen. Photography by Rufus de Vries, and design by Antoin Buissink. Editorial board: Arjan Gooijer, Frans van Hulten, Simea Knip, Maaike Schravesande. Translation by Michael Meert.
