Kim Courrèges has been invited to write an article -Collective haven- in the second issue of the architectural magazine MOMENTUM, entitled Self, Shell, Shelter.
Excerpt of the article: “Each society deals with this enigma through a set of rituals–understood as sequences of actions involving specific gestures, words, objects, and people in a specific place– in order to honor, celebrate or remember the dead. Yet with time, people forget. These places of ritual tend to be neglected and fall into decay. However, cemeteries usually benefit from being situated in a valuable place in the city: they are essentially walled gardens, preserved from the city’s nuisances, with specific architectures and landscapes, offering a haven (of peace) for local fauna and people.”
