About Louis Le Roy
In Mildam just outside Heerenveen Le Roy has been working on what he has called an ecocathedral for over thirty years. With his bare hands he has been stacking up paving stones, paving bricks, kerbstones and other rubble from the city and allow nature go its own free way. In his work time and space are essential, he advocates sites in urban areas where plants, animals and people will once more be given unlimited space and time. In his words: “From a utopian point of view every city should develop from the creative potential of all the people living in it.”
