Cemetery Manifesto

A cemetery should be designed as a spiritual place where people can saunter and rest in a natural setting in which design and nature draw the mind and feelings to deeper thoughts. A cemetery will only be a spiritual place, if it seems hard to reach, if it requires layers of access, waiting, various means of approach, gradual discovery and revelation. Each gravesite within the cemetery must have elements such as an edge, a path, and a quite corner for sitting in order to enhance the processes of mourning, discovery and revelation.
