Crematorium in Basel by Architekturbüro Garrigues Maurer

Research, Architecture

The new Crematorium is located in the largest cemetery in Switzerland Hörnli, a place of mourning and devotion, surrounded by a space of peace that helps to say goodbye.

Architekturbüro Garrigues Maurer GmbH designed the new Crematorio, completed at the end of 2017, where the biggest cemetery in Switzerland, called Hörnli, was finished in the 1930s. The course of arbitrary and often painful nature is contrasted with human reason in the Hörnli cemetery in the form of a clear and geometric garden, so the architects, when designing the new Crematorium, regard this attitude respectfully.

Architect: Architekturbüro Garrigues Maurer
