A team of architects drawn from three companies – OMA, FABRICations and LOLA – will begin redevelopment of Amsterdam’s Bijlmerbajes prison complex in 2018. Built in the 1970s on the outskirts of the city, the site has since been enveloped by urban growth, making it a far more central location than it had previously been. The finished neighborhood will be called the “Bajes Kwartier” and will be home to a variety of public and private spaces, including affordable rental apartments, luxury condominiums, an urban vertical park and farm, arts and health centers, a school and a restaurant.
