DAMN° is an independent quarterly print magazine and digital platform that explores opinions on contemporary culture. It was founded in 2004 and has intimately witnessed the expansion of the discipline. So while design will always be its home-base, the magazine’s vision has expanded to include our belief that the broader contemporary narrative needs a cultural perspective which art, design and architecture bring. DAMNº’s editorial content moves beyond glossy hype and dry academic debate. It celebrates imagination and is unafraid to define links between what’s personal, political, economic, emotional, stylistic and social.

Orde Van Architecten
Any person who wishes to practise as an architect in Belgium must first register with the Order of Architects. The Order of Architects was established by an act of parliament in 1963 and has a current membership of more than 15,000 architects (natural persons). Its main task is to establish rules of professional conduct for architects (often rules of ethics) and to make sure that architects observe them. In other words, the Order of Architects assures the quality of architectural practice. It also monitors access to the profession and, more specifically, oversees compulsory practical training.
