The idea is to return a cross back to the landscape, to the place where it had always been. The cross is part of the gate which carries its own meaning and new symbolic - it’s an imaginary border between life and death. It’s a place behind which it’s possible to get dispersed, in the east-west direction. To walk through the gate means to get “to the other side“ where we can contemplate.. It’s possible to get dispersed in the landscape. It’s not a small dispersive meadow, but, first of all, an act of the walk-through.... It’s not possible to see over the gate due to a tree. The gate is related to a cemetery, it’s connected to a path from the cemetery which has always existed there. But there is no path behind the gate?......

This blog has been set up as an extension of a free weekly e-mail we've been sending out since 1999.
It is our intention to raise the level of design by exposing ourselves to the examples set by others (both good and bad). We sincerely hope you will think, reflect, learn and raise the bar (or at least bring some insight and/or intelligent conversation that might have been overlooked) on the project in which you are currently engaged.
The thoughtful evolution of the design of our cities and built environment is dependant upon the engaged critical thinking of its design professionals.
