How might we design for remembrance and reflection?
Expected Completion 2022
Currently under construction, this mausoleum offers a place of refuge and contemplation that takes the form of two self-supporting brick parabolic cones. The cones are titled at different angles, creating a ring-shaped passage that loops around the main space. The passageway culminates in a double-arched entryway that opens onto a sanctuary overlooking the crypt.
CREATING A SACRED SPACE
The passageway invites mourners to circumambulate the crypt, offering a powerful ritual journey defined by the shifting spatial experience created by the tilted cones. A pair of elliptical skylights top the cones, offering views of passing clouds through a weightless pair of curving brick planes.
