ASIAIN HALL CEMETERY EXTENSION in Navarre, Spain by Iñigo Esparza Arquitecto

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

Article source: Iñigo Esparza Arquitecto

The Town council of Asiain, a small community located in the municipality of Olza, proposed a simple program when decided to build an extension for the old cemetery. An open air area containing the burial niches and a side construction with the autopsy room and a storage unit.

The limited dimensions of the cemetery and the inexistence of a covered space to provide shade and shelter from the harshness of weather, encouraged to transform the new access into a small pavilion. A prismatic volume, link between the old and the new area, not only used as a roofed platform but also as a module containing the indoor program.

Sansepolcro Cemetery in Arezzo, Italy by Studio Zermani e Associati

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

Article source: Studio Zermani e Associati

Sansepolcro, the halfway point between Santiago de Compostela and Jerusalem, and birthplace of Piero della Francesca, is surrounded by the hills on the border between Tuscany and Umbria that the painter transferred into his own pictorial space. Piero often observed the landscape from inside: for him, the background was important, as was the point of view. The extraordinary perspective application of his images imposes the relationship between eye, architecture or monument, and landscape with didactic clarity. The landscape of Sansepolcro is a place recognised as far back as the description given by Pliny: “Beautiful is the aspect of the region: you can imagine it as an immense amphitheatre, such that only nature is able to create.”

Islamic Cemetery Altach in Austria by Bernardo Bader

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Philipp Bechter

The design of a cemetery is based on the beliefs and their funeral rites, which in turn say a lot about the particular understanding of nature and social relations.

This fact should also be shown clearly in the new cemetery project for Muslims in Vorarlberg.
