Competition: design a tomb

Here’s a challenge: designing a tomb.

The photographs on the site look rather traditional but you do wonder if the spirit of the times (renewal, recycling, sustainability) calls for something different, less concerned with resisting time and decay and more with letting go. An anti-tomb perhaps, dedicated to impermanence. I wish I was an architect.

I posted the competition on Facebook and it led to this exchange:

Tombs express a world view. What sort of tomb fits today’s world?
