Reading between the lines of church design

Reading between the lines of church design

Bet you’ve never seen a church quite like this before. The 'Reading between the lines' project is the result of a collaboration between Belgian architects Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh. The use of the horizontal plates aims to challenge the traditional concept of a church, transforming it into a transparent object of art, with the designers saying it “... emphatically transcends the strictly architectural”. 

Located in the Belgian region of Haspengouw, this alternative and impressive church was built using 30 tons of steel and 2000 columns. 

To see exactly how it was constructed, feast your eyes on the time lapse video below.
