The idea for De Groene Kathedraal (The Green Cathedral), a land art project by Marinus Boezem (Leerdam, 1934) stems from 1978. Boezem wanted to realize this landart project in an artificial landscape, in which changes in time and space are clearly visible. The polder to the south of Almere proved to be a good spot. In April 1987 the project was begun and 178 Italian poplars were planted in the form of an outline of Notre-Dame of Reims. The trees, with their gothic appearance are the cathedral's "pillars". In the summer of 1996 De Groene Kathedraal was completed with the laying of the "floor", in which a pattern of concrete paths reflect the cross-supports of gothic arches. The Notre-Dame of Reims is known as a religious sanctuary where the French kings would be anointed. The coronation of every king between 1137 and 1825 was celebrated there.
