Wellcome Collection Competition

We submitted a proposal answering an open call competition for the upcoming ‘Living with buildings’ exhibition at the Wellcome collection.

About The Wellcome Collection

The brief required an architectural response to an issue facing humanity and how built forms can address these needs. Our proposal sought to challenge the taboo surrounding death. We offered an experiential pavilion to provide a cathartic and educational space in which the subject of death was centre stage.

Exploring alternative burial methods, our aim was to dispel myths surrounding traditional funerary practices and highlight the importance of the role of dignity in the acceptance of death and disposal by championing the ecological burial process Promession™ and celebrating the cycle of life.
