The Upside Dome – Gijs / Van Vaerenbergh

Category : Architecture, Art, Installation · No Comments · by May 8, 2011

From the site: “..The installation casts light on the architecture of one of the most prestigious baroque churches of the Low Countries from a contemporary perspective. Using the design technique of the catenary, a new structure emerges in the church. The Upside Dome is a real size scale model, comprised of hundreds of meters of chain, which is literally and figuratively the counterpart of the unfinished dome..”
