Reading involving the Lines is a project by the duo Gijs Van Vaerenbergh, a collaboration amongst young Belgian architects Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh.
The church is ten meters high and is created of one hundred layers and 2000 columns of steel. Depending on the perspective of the viewer, the church is either perceived as a enormous creating or seems to dissolve – partly or totally – in stlaurent abstract coffee the landscape. On the other hand, searching at the landscape from within the church, the surrounding countryside is redefined by abstract lines.
The design of the church is based on the architecture of the multitude of churches in the region, but via the use of horizontal plates, the notion of the standard church is transformed into a transparent object of art.
Reading involving the Lines can be study as a reflection on architectural themes such as abstract coffee table scale, the ground plan and so on., but the project also emphatically transcends the strictly architectural. Soon after all, the church does not have a properly-defined function and focuses on visual practical experience in itself (1 could even look at it to be a line drawing in space). At the very same time, the construction demonstrates that this practical experience is in effect a consequence of the style, considering that it explicitly refers to the many stages in its conception: the design and style drawing, the model… Apart from that, simply because the church does not fulfil its classical function, it can be read as a heritage connected reflection on the present vacancy of churches in the location (and their possible artistic reuse).
