Architecture Integrated with its Landscape

Kaze-no-Oka Crematorium

Fumihiko Maki, known as an unwavering modernist with a soft demeanor, completed this crematorium in 1996. The building reveals Maki’s deft response to an age concerned with environment. Maki designed the whole site as a landscape that seems to include the surrounding environment. Undecorated forms and textures of unprocessed materials convey a sense a spirituality far exceeding the basic functionality of a place for end-of-life gatherings. The resulting work of architecture transcends the modern by resonating with its place and history.
