The Belgian architects duo Gijs Van Vaerenbergh (BE) built a see-through church for Borgloon. Reading between the Lines is 10 metres high and consists of 100 stacked layers of steel plate in the shape of a church of Loon. The construction weighs a whopping 30 tons. The special way of construction makes the landscape always visible throughout the church, from far away and up-close. The church is therefore present but also absent in the landscape.
Location: walking path between the Sint-Truidersteenweg and the Roman Road (Romeinse Kassei). Access: Reading between the Lines is only accessible by foot or by bicycle. If you come by car, please park on the (Pb) parking at Sint-Truidersteenweg between Grootloonstraat and Neremstraat and continue by foot. From the parking you may follow the orange, blue, yellow or green walking route.
