Yale University’s Faculty of Architecture opened an exhibition asking architects to imagine and design their own burial place. This is not a new theme, several architects had already done the same, from Mimar Sinan to Le Corbusier.
The exhibition was conceived as a point of conversation on the themes of death and memory. From here the question: “What do we, as architects, choose to remember and honor – and how?”
Curated by Jerome Tryon, David Schaengold and Luka Pajovic, the exhibition features drawings of the tombs of architects including Barozzi Veiga, Fala, Erin & Ian Besler, Bryan Cantley, Níall McLaughlin, Flores & Prats and others, while students from the faculty were asked in parallel to draw the tombs envisioned by masters including Adolf Loos and Jože Plečnik.
