BRION CEMETERY VISITOR'S CENTER
WHERE | Tomba Brion, Altivole, Italy
WHEN | Spring 2016
Situated directly adjacent to Carlos Scarpa’s iconic Brion-Vega Cemetery in Northern Italy. This project, done almost entirely in analogue consisted of a thorough analysis of the project itself as well as the eventual siting, design, and development of an accompanying visitor’s center.
Tucked into the southern corner of the cemetery, the project breaks the wall in a single instance to actively engage with the cemetery, allowing for the re-articulation of the sites spatial sequence to allow for more linearity. Like the cemetery itself, the project demonstrates the relationship between life and death through the encapsulation of self-contained micro-biomes within thickened glass wall conditions to symbolize how life and death are entirely intertwined.
