York Minster Abbey, one of the largest Gothic Cathedrals in Europe, was decked out with 1,500 square meters of – what else - grass.

These Pictures are amazing,.. The combination of Gothic Detail and Green Grass is a mind-blowing. Simple and Clever idea creates a Powerful impact...
Feels like I want to lie down and just enjoy the space,.. a very bizarre feeling yet amazing if you think of two contradicting concept come together. Fells like Outdoor because of the grass, yet it is indoor of a human achievement of architecture,..a high celing of stone but beneath your feet is a soft live grass, spreading the summer smell and reflecting a dim light from the cathedral windows.
