This will be one of events taking place at the iconic Bijlmerbajes since they are planning to break down the building. It will make place for a new residential area: the Bajes Kwartier. Planning is to use materials from the old prison for the rebuilding of the area. The bridges that will be connecting the area with the city, for example, will be made from old cell doors. How cool is that!
