Filipa Figueira, MArch.

 

The idea was to be a place for all faiths and religions.

On the ground there is a well, which reminds us the four elements - Water, Air, Earth and Fire. Sacred elements but not religious, will mark several centres or reference points, the fire is the crematorium, the water is the well, the land the graves and the air is symbolized by deposits chapel, the ossifies the urns and drawers. These elements will symbolize several moments and functions of the project itself. There is a fifth element, one large tree a Magnolia Grandiflora, which symbolizes Life.
