Between 1975 and 1990 I lived in Amsterdam Bijlmermeer. That was during my study at the University and some years there after. During the years I started to ask myself who or what was behind this city of extremes.
That ended up in two books:
– Van de Bijlmer meer maken (to make more out of Bijlmermeer)
– Van Bijlmer polder tot Amsterdam Zuidoost (from Bijlmer polder to Amsterdam Southeast)
Here are the links to some of the stuff that I wrote during these years.
De Bijlmermeer en het onvermogen van de politiek – artikel in Gepakte Stad – 1986
Van Bijlmermeerpolder tot Amsterdam Zuidoost – 1987 – uitgegeven bij de Staatsuitgeverij (with English summary)
