Crematorium and Cemetary IJsselhof Gouda
The municipality of Gouda asked us to make a plan for the construction of a crematorium on a cemetary.
The cemetery with adjacent a park is to be made into one large park, boundaries are removed. The row of trees is transformed into an axis. Start point is the crematorium. It is housed in a wall of earth. In front is an open space covered with a tent under which a fire burns. Along the axis a chapel and a new cascade of water descending into the park. The river next to the park is a tidal stream. The axis points towards the sea.
