To repair this prison for the wandering souls, it starts from the island, and the stigmas attributed to it. Using light to deconstruct conventional intense memorials. Forming an approachable confrontation of the issue presented. It draws in community and attention through its curvature form and perforation of material. Spitting them towards pure utilitarian sectors of Administration, Machinery, Reflection & Mausoleum. Its intents thus are reflected in the recycled tiles from surrounding ruins, bright spaces & the nestling of a child and mother form.
Within the vecinity of the mother form, its warmth are harvested through geothermal ducts, thermal mass (earth berms), and diffused sunlight. Combining care for surrounding & a story - rich form.
