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.
