Using Mortality to Revive Our Relationship To The World.

The project focuses on reviving the relationship between us and our world. The chosen site is on the South Bank in London and centres on normalising death through phenomenological ideas. The design is a vertical cemetery, using new technology that transforms a body into soil in 30 days, and different design strategies to juxtapose the ideas of death and target different stages of grief.

  • ' Reviving the Plasticity of Jubilee Park' centred on researching phenomenology to bring back the sculptural atmosphere of a park located, in Woodhall Spa, by creating a folly.
  • The concept for the design was the landscape of the underworld, one of the oldest forms of how the afterlife is expressed. This shows and illustration and architectural translation of the underworld.
  • This section expresses the acoustic, thermal, and light qualities, designed to provide atmospheric life to the building, which contrasts the nature of the vertical cemetery.
