See-Through Church in Limburg, Belgium by ‘Gijs Van Vaerenbergh’

See-Through Church in Limburg, Belgium by ‘Gijs Van Vaerenbergh’

See-Through Church, a dramatically daring concept that might not catch your eye at first, but it really shines upon closer inspection. Designed by Gijs Van Vaerenberghthe church is 10 meters high and is made of 100 layers and 2000 columns of steel.

Depending on the perspective of the viewer, the church is either perceived as a massive building or seems to dissolve – partly or entirely – in the landscape.

The church is a part of the Z-OUT project of Z33, house for contemporary art based in Hasselt, Belgium. Z-OUT is an ambitious longterm art in public space project that will be realised on different locations in the Flemish region of Limburg over the next five years.

I don’t think this church will be used for services. I think it’s more of a statue-type of art.

    It is a thought-provoking piece of art, but I would love to see it used for worship of some sort. To me that would increase its ‘interaction’ with the world that surrounds and permeates it.
