Cemeteries have been lost in the modern landscape of today. These once celebrated spaces are today labeled as taboo -- only to be visited on mournful occasions. However, by applying the modern landscape issues of sustainability, community open space and respecting and aiding the healing process to cemetery design, deathscapes can once again function as an integral element of the neighborhood fabric. This thesis explores cemetery history and present in search of design elements for a contemporary burial site that addresses these issues.
