Mind-bending optical illusion architecture – a disappearing church

I’m not a religious person, but I do like design. And this interesting architecture of the facade of a church in Borgloon, Belgium, is a rare visual treat. The building appears whole from one angle, but from another, layers of its structure seem to create an optical illusion by dissolving into thin air. Conceptualized by Leuven, Belgium-based architect Gijs Van Vaerenbergh, the vacant church is built from 30 tons of steel and 2000 columns, with its abstract design reflecting the heritage of aged churches preserved for their ancient, beautiful architecture.
