The aim of the post of Vlaams Bouwmeester is to promote the architectural quality of the built environment, understood as a synthesis of qualities in terms of urban environment, use and perception, image quality, building technology, energy, cost management and so on. This commitment is demonstrated in the support of principals in public and semi-public projects for the design and construction of buildings, public space, landscape and infrastructure, and always related to the changing social challenges and from a cross-sectional perspective of collaboration with players and sectors involved.
