Derek Williams – RIBA South Student Prize (Part 2), Portsmouth School of Architecture

Derek’s project explored funerary landscapes, looking at attitudes towards death and religion in the 20th century and how cemetery landscape and architecture reflected them. He designed a crematorium, memorial garden and woodland burial ground in Calabria that contributes to the drama and ritual of cremation of burial – creating, through a sequence of spaces, a reflection of emotions associated with grieving: comfort, release, reflection and memory.
