Reading between the Lines

Gijs Van Vaerenbergh

The duo of architects Gijs Van Vaerenbergh created a see-through church in Borgloon. Reading between the Lines is 10 metres high and consist of 100 stacked layers of steel plate shaped like a little Loon church. The construction weighs no less than 30 tons. The special way in which the church was constructed ensures that the landscape always remains visible when looking through the church, but from a distance and close up. The church is thus present in the landscape, but also absent.
