Z33, House for Contemporary Art, Design and Architecture in Hasselt, Belgium, is a ground-breaking arts institution in Hasselt that works at the intersection of art, design and architecture.

A laboratory where explanation, imagination and modeling come together and shed new light on questions both great and small. Nothing is taken for granted. What seemed distant comes closer.
