Architecture of DEATH



Architecture is a very wide topic. Architecture is not about a building only. It covers about urban planning, landscape design and interior design too. Architecture also concerned everything, including arts, fashions and social life.

There are many interpretations of architecture styles been implemented by many parties. The history of architecture had started from a work of 'De architectura' written by the Roman architect called 'Vitruvius' in the early 1st century. The timeline continues after that to the latest movement of 20th century trends of architecture.

The above timeline has involved several movements or styles, such as Victorian architecture, arts and crafts movement, art nouveau architecture, beaux arts architecture, neo-gothic architecture and art-deco architecture.

What is architecture of death? Belief or not, death is one of the reasons to build a structure. The pyramids are among the oldest buildings in the world. It's been designed and accommodated the dead. Because of that reason, there are few corpses of an ancient Egypt ruler called 'Pharaoh' buried inside the buildings. Thank god the buildings still survive for us to appreciate.

The architecture of death is sacred, devoted, divine, sainted, venerable, consecrated, and inviolable.

An immortal, deathless, ever-living, imperishable, episternal, endless, enduring and ceaseless images are the suitable look of the spiritual architecture.

The architecture is picturing a strong and though elements. At every event of death, there is involvement of a few processes, which starts from the dying episode until the burial ceremony done. The steps are the core ingredients of a new style that involved, and we called it 'Spiritual Architecture'.
