As cities spread, the demand for space grows. However, it does not refer to living only but to the dead as well. The work explores the development of new large city cemetery and technical aspects of funeral industry. In a society in which success and security are crucial, death is a hidden problem. Through landscape, architecture and formality death seems distant and tamed. Yet, it remains wild and unpredictable.
