Starlight Memorial, 2017
Starlight Memorial is an architectural response to a lack of space in urban communities. The project proposes a new and unique commentary on how cemeteries, as a traditional method of laying people to rest, are no longer a viable option given this lack of space.
Taking inspiration from Kusama’s ‘Infinity Mirror Rooms’, Starlight Memorial offers room for thousands of hanging motion sensor LED light urns, acting as a replacement for a connection to the physical body. Multi-levelled and partly submerged underground, the building integrates the use of public and private realms with a connection to nature, offering different forms of comfort and emotional connection for family and friends.
