Giuliano Mauri, who is an Italian artist is known for his structure in natural architecture and partook in various architecture joint efforts, for example, the Venice Biennale, Milan Triennale, and Biennale of Penne. 

His Cattedrale Vegetale, or Tree Cathedral, is maybe the most attractive among all of them. To understand his vision, Mauri planted two forests of trees that will grow into amazing basilicas. The Cathedral possesses 42 segments shaping a basilica for five isles.

He began the structure of his Tree Cathedral by making confines with tree stumps, he did this using branches and tree trunks, when complete, he planted the two forests of trees which involved 80 horn-bean saplings inside the enclosures. These will, in the long run, develop into enormous trees, filling the holes as the wood disintegrates after some time. 

The project was huge, utilizing 1,800 tidy trunks, alongside 600 chestnut tree limbs which are then verified together utilizing 6,000 meters of hazelnut twigs. This was accomplished by utilizing customary strategies for entwining and weaving. With time it will grow to become a natural rooftop over the cathedral.

The church building is tremendous, taking up 650 sq. meters altogether and took a long time to make. In excess of 90 feet in length, 80 feet wide and with a variable stature between 16 feet up to 70 feet tall, it is an incredible sight.

Mauri began his creation in 2001 however, unfortunately, died in 2009, before he was able to complete his project. Finished only a year later, it presently remains as a remembrance to Mauri, his specialty and architecture.

You can visit the Tree Cathedral at the foot of Mount Arera, in Northern Italy.
