Architecture

Ewan Lauchland

Through the urbanisation of death and mourning, this thesis argues for the reintegration of the worlds of the living and the dead, in the form of a crematorium and new collective monument of mourning. Through this, a prevalent societal aversion to death is challenged and a more positive dialogue with mortality is encouraged. The crematorium seeks to increase the significance of the commitment of the deceased as an integral part of the ceremony, whilst the new urban monument provides a place of remembrance for the individual whilst simultaneously acting as the collective memory of the city.
