KLEIBURG - THE 1 EURO BIJLMER FLAT

by Patrick Saringer (Austria)

The Bijlmer Area South East of Amsterdam was a globally unique urban devolopment concept based on the work of the Swiss Architect Le Corbusier. It was the utopia of a functional city.

When the buildings were finally finished, living ideals had changed and the buildings were mostly left empty. At the end of the 80s the community was mainly black unemployed people depending on social welfare. This implied as well a high criminal rate.

Kleiburg is a building block in Bijlmer Area, which was supposed to get demolished. Resistance of the residents led to the building being sold for 1 Euro and the appartments could be bought as a DIY Project cheaply.

Today the Kleiburg building is home to more than 1000 people with a different social and cultural background.
