The district heating network is a robust solution for the energy transition and after completion Cordium continues to improve and optimize this, assisted by European partners. Inspiring!

"Referring, an exploration of the use of references in architecture and in art"
Dirk Janssen looks for the role and meaning of referring in the artistic process. He wanted to make the use of references visible and open to discussion and therefore, in addition to a literature study, he had conversations with nine artists, including architects. These conversations with Steven Aalders, Jantje Engels and Marius Grootveld, John Körmeling, Jasper Rigole, Dirk Somers, Koen Van Bockstal, Benjamin Verdonck, Leon Vranken and Erik Wiëers led to letters describing and analyzing their use of references.
