Nakatsu Crematorium

The Hills of Winds Crematorium in Nakatsu was designed by the architect Fumihiko Maki in 1997. His work often explores the use of new materials and the fusion between Eastern and Western cultures. I was particularly inspired by the crematorium not only for it’s simplicity in design but also because of it’s use of light leading the mourners through the different stages of the funeral rite.
