ELYSION

INTER-CONFESSIONAL CEMETERY, WEINSTADT (G), 1998

The cemetery as a reflection of society - if life is a constantly renewable circuit, birth is the entry into this circle and death only the farewell from the roundel. Independent of religiosity or cultural origin, people live today in a country, a city or a circle of friends, who respect one another. In the logical consequence of this thought, a cemetery of the present was to follow this idea and reflect social reality.

INTER-CONFESSIONAL CEMETERY, WEINSTADT (G), 1998

Death, as the absolute end of an individual life, was and is inevitable but there is comprehensive hope that, through death, you are transferred to another form of being or you will at least account for your own work. The 'other place' differs from the earthly world and is symbolically only separated by the flow of forgetting. A cemetery is a place to combat forgetting, it will give you the opportunity to bring the other world and this world spatially together and to recreate the memory again by means of bridges. At the end of the path. there is the paradisaic elysion, an island in the park as a place to spend time, meet and farewell.
