< Pieterjan Gijs & Arnout Van Vaerenbergh >

" Designed in 2011 by architects Pieterjan Gijs & Arnout Van Vaerenbergh, this surrealistic folly in the Belgian city of Borgloon is composed of 100 evenly spaced layers of steel that are stacked, to almost diaphanous effect, in the form of a nave and steeple. Inspired by local church buildings, the 30-foot-high structure was created as a long-term work of public art along a walking path. The experience of viewing it is extraordinary, with the edifice shifting - depending on one's vantage point - from a solid mass to a spectacular impression of lines dissolving into the surrounding landscape." - Samuel Cochran
