Reading between the Lines church
Reading between the Lines church was designed by Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh, young Belgian architects. They completed the implementation of the project clear of the church under a symbolic name Reading between the Lines. The walls of unusual structure, which height is 10 meters, made of 100 stacked layers of iron plates, ribbons, attached to each other with 2000 iron bars.
Gaps between the plates allow visitors in the true sense of the term, see through walls, being both inside and outside the church. The silhouette mimics the shape of the building of churches, traditional for the region, but its unusual structure embodiment translates into the category of contemporary art.
Depending on where the location of the beholder, the church may seem like a massive building, and may be partially or almost completely dissolved in the surrounding landscape like a mirage in the desert. If you look at the landscape from inside the church, it becomes part of an abstract figure, given the unique construction of transparent walls.
The project, implemented in a Limburg (Belgium), is part of the Z-OUT, coordinated gallery Z33, whose purpose was to promote contemporary art in public space. It is planned that the implementation of large-scale and ambitious project will be implemented in various places in the Flemish region for the next five years.
Reading between the Lines church. The conceptual project name perfectly defines the architecture of the shell of the modern church. Its philosophical sense, what is inside and what is outside, interact with each other and do not need additional decorations and artificial amplification of the divine majesty of nature and divine nature. Together with the parishioners live here dawn, sunset and all four seasons.
