De Groene Kathedraal - Marinus Boezem

This ‘Gothic’ cathedral has no stone vaults, no stained glass windows or corridors, but rather is entirely created by formal groupings of poplars. The artist Marinus Boezem planted the trees following the plan set out for the Notre-Dame cathedral in Reims. Concrete paths between the trees reflect the joists of the cross vaults. Circles of shells around the trees recall the sea that once submerged these lands 50 years ago.
