This Belgian church constructed by architect group Gijs Van Vaerenbergh may look normal, but it is hiding a very unusual secret.

Dubbed “Reading Between the Lines,” it is made out of 100 layers of sheet steel. From some angles, it looks normal, but from others it is clear that it is completely see-through.

Weighing in at 30 tons, the purpose of the project was to symbolize that the church is tangibly present but also visibly absent. It also symbolizes Jesus Christ, who is always there even though we can’t always see him.

The church has attracted quite a few visitors, even though it functions as a work of art rather than a place of worship.
