Rebecca Martin, "Taylor Massey Cemetery"

This project proposes a green urban burial space with a forest planted using the Miyawaki method, integrated with the Recompose process developed by Katrina Spade. The cemetery is organized using a grid, with lights placed among densely planted trees grown in nurseries on site; one light is placed for each person laid to rest. Two archive buildings contain details surrounding those buried. Combining culture with ecological restoration, this is both an accessible greenspace and a site of active memory and contemplation for those who have lost a loved one.
