Young architects Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh designed the transparent church in the Belgian Haspengou. The church is part of the "Z-OUT". This is a large and ambitious long-term project, designed for installation of architectural monuments of modernity, which will be implemented over the next five years.
The height of the church is 10 meters. The transparent church consists of 100 sections and 2,000 columns, melted steel. Depending on your point of view of the construction of the church, or is perceived as a massive, monolithic building, or dissolved in the landscape.
The overall design of the transparent church is based on the architecture of many churches, located in the region, but also by the horizontal plates, the concept of the traditional church into a real object of contemporary art.
The transparent church project is called "read between the lines." The transparent church does not have clearly defined roles and established primarily as a visual experiment. It is also a completely new experience of construction of such facilities.
