Klerk, Michel de

Klerk, Michel de (1884–1923). Dutch architect and member of the Amsterdam School, he is best known for his Expressionist designs carried out in collaboration with Pieter Lodewijk Kramer, notably the Scheepvaarthuis (Navigation House), Amsterdam (with van der Mey, 1911–16), and the De Dageraad Housing Estate, Amstellaan (1920–2). His Eigen Haard Housing Estate, Spaarndammerbuurt, Amsterdam West (1913–20), in which towers, turrets, different types of windows, and finely crafted brickwork suggested the richness of a medieval town, reflects the architect's aim to avoid barrack-like tenements for working-class Socialist housing.
