Almost five years ago, I visited the Crematorium building by Asplund in the Woodland Cemetery, in Stockholm. After crossing the artificial landscape along a seemingly introverted building, I remember entering a forecourt, grabbing a beautiful door handle and entering a waiting room before reaching the chapel. A wooden bench was softly emerging from the wall, like a curved silk fabric, oriented towards a long window to an enclosed courtyard. The warmth of the space, enhanced by the metaphor of a domestic carpet and the rounding and softness of the corners, was suddenly disturbed by the image of a very small window which was framing very precisely the artificial hills and trees that were guiding the visitor when entering the site. The feeling of connection to an endless outside world condensed in a window was, somehow, sublime. </p><figure><img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/st/std32ic6aqelcoyg.jpg?auto=compress%2Cformat&amp;w=1200"><figcaption>View through the window at the Woodland Crematorium, by Erik Gunnar Asplund....</figcaption></figure> https://archinect.com/news/article/150048944/rebuilding-the-american-city-patty-heyda-on-the-politics-behind-the-design Rebuilding the American City: Patty Heyda on "the politics behind the design" Liam Otten 2018-02-07T12:42:00-05:00 >2018-02-07T12:42:47-05:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/h9/h9dx34qp54aso7ok.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><p>How do you restore community?
