This project, Reading between the Lines,  is part of an exhibition presenting art in a public space. In the region of Borgloon-Heers (in the Belgian province of Limburg) this construction, based on the design of the local church, was revealed in the rural landscape.

The project was developed by Gijs Van Vaerenbergh, a collaboration between Belgain architects Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh. This transparent building consists of 30 tons of steel and 2000 columns, and is built on a fundament of armed concrete. Through the use of horizontal plates, the architects transformed the concept of the traditional church into a work of art.
