Gijs Van Vaerenbergh has designed the strangest church we’ve seen

This church by architect Gijs Van Vaerenbergh appears to be completely transparent. When the light hits it at just the right angel, the Belgian church  seems to be glowing and completely other-worldly. It is constructed using  over 30 tons of steel and 2000 columns, meaning that contrary to it’s appearance, the structure is extremely solid. The illusion is incredible. I can’t help but feel at peace and almost sad for the disappearing church.
