Abstract
If Architecture can express the joy of birth and all the infinite aspects of human life, then Architecture can celebrate death as a final rite of passage. Can Architecture celebrate man's transition into the afterlife? How does this celebration translate literally into something tangible? How does this celebration translate figuratively into something tactile?
