Last weekend we went biking to a landscape art project in Almere called "The Green Cathedral".
The artist "Marius Boezem" has created a cathedral formed by a group of Italian poplars. In 1987 he planted 178 poplars according to the plan of the Notre Dame of Reims. Between the trees are the ribs of concrete paths that reflect the cross vaults. The shells circles around the trees refer to the sea around that a half century ago was. There is more symbolism to read here
This is an bird's eye view what it looks like when the leaves are on the trees.
I must say I was rather disappointed by seeing the "Cathedral". I think it was the wrong season to have a better view than a couple of leafless trees. We have to come back in summer. But it was fun to bike 20 km in chilly, but sunny weather.
