Life between the tides

A design for new cemeteries on the Dutch coast. According to this concept, already existing dams that go into the sea like dead end roads will be enhanced by our deceased loved ones. Recycled tombstones will be placed at the foot of the wooden palisades. On dams that don’t have palisades, man-sized memorial stones will be placed. They will also serve as a form of eternal protection against the power of the sea. In the tide, the tombs will appear and disappear twice a day.

The light from the lighthouse ratifies the farewell ceremony even more.
