Italian artist Guiliano Mauri is the father of this spectacular Cattedrale Vegetale (Tree Cathedral), a unique building created out of rows of real living trees. Located at the foot of Mount Arera on the outskirts of Bergamo in Northern Italy, the cathedral is an ever-changing building that will be fully formed over the course of decades. The architectural installation consists of 42 cage-like columns that form a five-aisle basilica. These are formed by weaving over 600 chestnut branches and 6,000 meters of hazel branches around 1,800 fir poles, joined together with wood, nails, and string to support 80 hornbeam saplings.
