    Reading between the Lines by Pierterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh, Limburg, Belgium.

    Designed in 2011 by architects Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh, this surrealistic folly in the Belgian city of Borgloon is composed of 100 evenly spaced layers of steel that are stacked, in the form of a nave and steeple. Inspired by local church buildings, the 30-foot-high structure was created as a longterm work of public art along a walking path.

    TADAO ANDO, CHURCH OF THE LIGHT: "considerable care is taken to see that the walls are as perfect as technique will allow. these walls are thick, solid, massive, and permanent . the main reinforced concrete shell of the church of the light is 15 inches thick."
