Trees are killed in order to construct a typical wooden building, but not this ‘wooden’ cathedral made entirely of living, breathing trees. Giuliano Mauri was the Italian artist responsible for envisioning and bringing to life this stunning piece of architecture, a building that does not take away from the natural landscape, nor compete with it, but instead is truly a part of nature. Mauri, who passed away in 2009, had a vision of this perfect Tree Cathedral in Valsugana, Italy. In 2001-2002, Mauri began to lay the foundations for the living cathedral and in 2010, shortly after his passing, his exquisite creation came to life. One day, the trees will grow up and together, forming a vaulted canopy ceiling made entirely of tree branches and leaves.
