Portrait of Mayor Gijs van Hall and Corbusier interpolated by the phrase "What is the scale of a Human?" in dutch on an abandoned slab housing project in Bijlmermeer.
Bijlmer was designed by the department of City Development according to the strict tenets of CIAM. Constructed throughout the 60's in striking resemblance to Le Corbusier's Radiant City plan, by the time the massive towers were constructed, high modernism was already under vitriolic scrutiny by the architectural community. Intended to alleviate Amsterdam's housing shortage, middle class never moved to the housing project in the wake of burgeoning suburbanization and a plummeting population in the center city.
Bijlmer became the dumping ground for unwanted immigrant communities and the city's excessive drug problems. Only until recently, has the massive housing project been redeveloped into more mixed income housing with a diversity of uses and styles. Many of the block slabs have been leveled due to poor construction and maintenance but the remaining towers have been renovated into exceptional apartments. This piece was created on one of the last remaining vacant houses.
