Transparent Steel Church

Location: Belgium

Architect: Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh

Year Completed: 2011

Designed to represent a line drawing in space, this church is foremost a structure called "Reading Between The Lines" created to be a visual experience rather than a place for religious worship. It is a structure 10-meters high, constructed from 30 tons of steel and 2,000 columns positioned in 100 layers, imitating a local church.
