Exactly as for the rebuilt of the Paris Cathedral, they decided to rebuilt with the same original technique that need 1000, yes one thousand!, oak trees all older than 100 years.Very unlike complex detailed adorned statue-filled relic-saving Catholic Churches that, (with great mansions), consumed all the major old Forrest’s of Europe for their grand timber.
One of the major realized resources of “The New World” was the wholesale harvesting of ancient North American virgin forrest that stunned newcomers as such riches were now extinct throughout Europe.Exactly as for the rebuilt of the Paris Cathedral, they decided to rebuilt with the same original technique that need 1000, yes one thousand!, oak trees all older than 100 years.
Quit insane IYAM.
Hello Nicolas, thank you for your post and reply, its really a pleasure to see these beautiful architectural pieces, I can't stop to be wondered and fascinated by them, I feel like a little child receiving a new present each time!Hi Ignacio “Oscar” Molina !
Great shots and comments
I know that @Antonio Correia has also achieved brilliant shots of churches, now my turn to show you one designed by one of my favorite architects Tadao Ando
When I came 4 years ago in Japan I wanted to visit his "Church of the Light" in Ibaraki – Osaka, I had seen it in some architectural books but I found the photos quite poor…
When we got there I requested the right to photograph and they allowed me for exactly 5 minutes while they did close the gates so I could be alone in the Church…

PS I'm atheist! But as Ignacio I'm impressed by the architecture designed by and for the believers…
