FINALE is an an open and safe death positive space. The building features multiple levels and zones catered towards different aspects of death. Each zone allows people to come to terms with their own mortality in different ways, no matter what stage in life they are. I chose the name finale as it ties in with the history of the building, as it was a purpose built cinema build in 1922. A finale is a term given to the ending of something often exciting or spectacular. I think Western society would benefit from viewing death more as a finale, focusing on a celebration of someones life rather than the loss of it.
