The time of death is the end for the deceased; it is also the beginning of grief. This project investigates the journey of those in sorrow, alongside the workers of the Crematorium. Narrow valleys, mountain peaks and deep fjords, the site I'm proposing has both a close and a distant view towards this characteristic nature in the district of Indre Sogn. The surrounding pine forest creates intimate spaces in an endless landscape, a quality that has been important in my approach. A long, red brick path leads you through the forest to the crematorium, consisting of a machinery and the ceremonies. A vault creates a shelter over the mourners and the workers. Both there to support the deceased. The aim is to create an architectural framework for the events after life.
