Modern Architecture: The Upside Dome (12 photos)

If buildings had feelings, the St. Michiel Church in Belgian would be depressed because all its neighbors have big, elaborate domes. Luckily for this church, two artists have come to its rescue...

Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh created the "Upside Dome," a real-size scale model comprised of hundreds of meters of chain. The installation is literally and figuratively the counterpart of the unfinished dome, and according to the artists, it "casts light on the architecture of one of the most prestigious baroque churches of the Low Countries from a contemporary perspective."
