Eva de Klerk

Eva de Klerk is deeply excited by projects that initially appear unsuitable for development and where the direction is not clear. She was a key figure in the re-development of the NDSM Shipyard project in northern Amsterdam where she initiated the plan to purchase the 86,000 square meter warehouse. Now a bustling hub for artists, creatives and youth the development is an important cultural aspect of the once derelict site. In 2008 she co-founded Open Innovation Capital with a focus on Open Source Creative City Development. She lectures nationally and internationally on methods for creating similar co-operative developments in other locales and still keeps a watchful eye on the developments along the river IJ in Amsterdam from her office in NDSM.
