The Almost Invisible Church

Religion is something that is not visually present but for many is still physically there. That is the idea that inspired a Belgian architectural group, Gijs Van Vaerenbergh, to build a church that from certain angles looks to be a pretty normal church. When seen though a different angle and different light the church the church seems to almost disappear!

The project is called “Reading Between the Lines.” The building itself is made up of layers of stacked steel, each one is placed in a way that creates a different appearance depending on where you are standing. This group is brilliant for taking an abstract idea like religion and solidifying it into an actual piece of architecture like this. The architectural group is known for having a architectural background but have artistic intentions — this isn’t any different for them.
