A See-Through Steel Church By Gijs Van Vaerenbergh
- Charmaine Li
Located in Borgloon, Belgium, ‘Reading Between The Lines’ is a nearly transparent steel church designed by Belgian architect studio Gijs Van Vaerenbergh. The 10-meter high structure consists of 100 evenly spaced steel layers stacked in the form of a steeple and seems to dissolve into the landscape when viewed at certain angles. Created as a public art piece, the church is part of a project that aims to spark conversations on how to use the increasing number of abandoned church buildings in the Flemish region.
