Second Life: Eco-Necropolis

Finalist in Reviving Mines, Non Architecture Design Competition 2020

Live Upon Nature / Tomb of Reborn / Forest Tapestry

Humankind is always part of nature, so as our death. We craft our living environment from nature and inhabit by it, yet we tend to disassociate away from nature as we progress. The mining site is one of it, evident as a leftover land of the disrupted ecosystem. This proposal revolves around the central thesis: “ If our presence is resulting in deterioration of nature, how would our death being a reparation?”

By using Capsula Mundi burial pod, the dimension of death can be inverted into new lifeform as a forest, grow upon the structural framework that restores the topography of chasm- like a hanging garden. It is symbolical to a heaven of forest, which the afterlives ascends to the higher place whereas the living ones gaze at their love ones from the chamber underneath the garden. Taking Zichuan extraction site as a template, this proposal suggests an ecological necropolis as the second life of the mining site, as well as the second life of humanity.

“Re-imagining an ethical emblem of human towards nature: to born within nature, to die within nature.”

  1. Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  3. Thanks for the tips on credit repair on your blog. Things i would tell people is usually to give up a mentality that they’ll buy now and fork out later. Like a society all of us tend to do this for many issues. This includes vacations, furniture, and also items we wish. However, you’ll want to separate the wants from the needs. If you are working to raise your credit ranking score you really have to make some trade-offs. For example you are able to shop online to save cash or you can click on second hand shops instead of expensive department stores with regard to clothing.
