Projective Space: Cemetery Without Graves

Spatial collage as a method of creating an environment which, due to its ambiguity, allows individual interpretation and evokes memories, is applied to the design of a cemetery for human composting.
After the complete transformation of human remains into fertile land, the grave becomes useless. From a cultural point of view, however, the ritual of burial and the symbolic, mental value of the cemetery play an important role for man not only in coping with the loss of our beloved, but also as a place of confrontation with our own finiteness.
The design works with the culturally conditioned idea of the cemetery as an image of the world. Transformated remains become material for modeling of the biodiverse terrain of the cultural landscape, a place that resonates with life.

The work received an honorable mention from the jury in the competition organized by the Czech Chamber of Architects.
