CHROFI and McGregor Coxall Propose a Woodland Cemetery Without Headstones

CHROFI and McGregor Coxall have designed Acadia Remembrance Sanctuary as a ?bushland cemetery for a secular society.? The architects are proposing a burial ground located in the idyllic setting of a conservation woodland area on the outskirts of Sydney. The project calls for natural graves without headstones, instead opting for GPS technology to find the resting sites of loved ones. The tactic shifts the emphasis of cemeteries from the manicured appearances of individual plots and headstones to the retention and protection of the bush ecology. The proposed cemetery is situated on 10.1 hectares (25 acres) of parkland with a 400 square meter (4,500 square foot) building located at its center.
