The Bio-Crematorium addresses the anti-sustainability of cemeteries today by exploiting the uncanny nature of factory, memorial, and landscape into a catalyst to understand the sustainable process of cremation with the use of water. The energy of memory currently exists as an ephemeral architecture governed by the speed limit of technology. In a location where multiple forms of transportation exist in close proximity, the perception of the ‘factory’ must be one of transition. Transition’s inherent movement then reflects our place in time by only allowing the user to understand a sense of continuous space rather than a location. The procession therefore manipulates both the visitor and the landscape to create a harmony and tension between the elements.
