Faced with unattractive architecture (aren't we all), cover your church in greenery! This is Parroquia del Huerto de los Olivos in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Their architecture doesn't look too bad, but nevertheless....choose an evergreen so it doesn't look like a bird's nest in winter, and to avoid damage to the building, grow the vines either on trellising or wires running through eye hooks screwed into the facade.
