Reading Between the Lines by Gijs Van Vaerenbergh


In this unique project by Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh, architecture meets art in a beautiful and gentle way. Made with 30 tons of steel and 2000 columns, and on a fundament of armed concrete this unconventional church provides the viewer with unique perspectives and views from each angel.


Depending on the perspective of the viewer, the church can appear as a conventional solid mass or a can disappear and blend into the landscape almost entirely. This structure is meant to aspire thought, contemplation a sense of existence.


The structure flirts with views of the mindscape dominating at times and ceasing to exist on others. Some have read it as a statement on current churches and the vacancies they have suffered.
