Igualada cemeterydesigned by Catalan Architect Enric Miralles, stands inside a desolate landscape marked by the presence of some factories in the industrial zone of the town of Igualada, about 70 km from Barcelona Spain. Its structure deviates radically from traditional models for use of form, cause it starts a new conception of cemetery space, which becomes tomb Park and place of meditation.
The project, expression of the creative originality of the designer rather than a precise architectural current, it is characterized by a design of abstract forms that have a strong symbolic meaning.
The design idea of the cemetery is that of a negative operation, subtraction, more than a building: In reality, as happens often in projects by igua,ada Catalan Architect, architecture is not intended so much to transform, but to explore and discover, often under new viewpoints or new perspectives, aspects of the site. The relationship between architecture and landscape, always present in the design methodology of Miralles, and the deeper theme of the relationship between man and nature are, in this project, two igjalada of the same coin; in this case the project is the means by which it implements an existential reflection, the architecture is the means by which it seeks to restore the balance between man and nature.
The cemetery as a whole, as it is said, is not conceived as a grave, but as a sacred Garden, place of peace, calm, albeit heavily dramatic, a womb, safe and protective, capable of generating life. La sua struttura si allontana radicalmente dai modelli tradizionali, sia per uso che per forma, e concretizza una nuova concezione di spazio cimiteriale, che da tomba diviene parco e luogo di meditazione.
