During my research I Found that 77% of Britons find it hard to talk about death. The event space aims to shift this cultural narrative that talking about death with other people is taboo or uncomfortable by providing a multi-functional space that educates, supports and connects the surrounding community to the subject of death. This is a multipurpose space, during the day it will be used by families who are wishing to rewatch family videos to remember the bereaved at any point after the crematorium experience. This allows families to re connect with their shared grief in a safe environment and also celebrate their deceased loved one. There is also an opportunity for those using the digital death pods to select videos and photos that they want to share with their family for this experience. At night it is a death education space, working to educate people on wider death culture, from art to science, this space connect wider topics such race, gender and class to death and death culture.

The water cremation space holds witness cremations which means once the bereaved enter the space they will be able to dress the casket, normally with flowers or pictures, and then they will witness the cremation. This active participation allows them to be engaged with the process. I also wanted this intimate space to be able to be opened up to the public in a controlled and educational way. So as you can see in this visual the ceiling is actually a void space which has a curtain that can be opened to let the public in or closed to allow complete privacy. Viewing a body has many benefits to the bereaved, often times seeing is believing and viewing the deceased a time for everyone to say goodbye to the deceased in their own personal way. I think through media. Corporations and how much death had been medicalised over the years, deceased bodies have been removed from society and stigmatised. By allowing people to witness a cremation and see the body in a safe and controlled way, this space will reduce the fear of bodies, and therefore the fear of death.

This space acts as a step between the reception and the waiting areas. Families can gather here and catch up so that they feel mentally prepared to witness the cremation.

The death design space showcases contemporary designers who are re-designing urns, coffins, and caskets to make them more sustainable. These objects challenge the somber and ‘taboo’ feeling surrounding death by introducing objects in domestic settings with bright colours and sleek designs. This space functions like any store where people can come and purchase sustainable death designs which can be kept in their home as decor until they pass. By interacting with these products during the users’ lifetime, they are encouraged to reflect and familiarise themselves with their mortality in a setting that feels safe to them.
