Project description
Architectural Competition – Second Prize
The challenge was to transform the site, constrained by a steep slope, into an architectural space of symbolic value. Spatial sequences enhance the pedestrian path while planting would change the cemetery into a peaceful public garden: a space for life. Massing is inspired by local religious architecture as required by the developer.
