Forest of Memorization


Forest of Memorization


An innovativ architecture that is taking care about the contemporary handling with the human death.
File under

The given plan illustrates the accommodation of urns in an addressing architectural manner. As the name already suggests, our idea is to include the natural structure of a forest. This basic construction gives a suitable atmosphere to the building. It emphasizes on a more private, individual way of a funeral rather than on lined up checkered urn niches. The mourning hall is formed by a glade. It can be separated by a curtain from the rest of the building and can be increased or reduced according to the number of mourners. Moreover the four curtains form the border between outside and inside on four sides of the building. The curtains are suited for that incident because they can be opened or closed due to weather condition and season. The arrangement of the urns at the pillars and the position of the pillars to one another create a huge number of gaps all over the building. That's why many mourners can remain in the building while not disturbing each other.
