Belgian architects Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh have constructed a beautiful see-through church in the Belgian region of Haspengouw. The public installation was built as part of the Z-OUT project for Z33 House for Contemporary Art.
The 10-meter structure is made of 100 stacked layers and 2000 columns of steel plates. From a certain angle the building appears as a traditional church structure, yet with a change in perspective the walls seem to dissolve against the skyline. In addition, for people inside the church the appearance of its interior changes depending on the time of day, sunlight and shadows waxing and waning accordingly.
