Chapels and cemeteries are, to me, some of the most stunning and moving forms of architecture and landscape architecture.
In my mind it has something to do with how each space is respecting life- or the absence of it. They are places for solitude as well as coming together. Weddings and funerals. Prayer and celebration.
If these places are beautiful, that beauty is a reflection of what they represent.
In chapels, reverence of life and appreciation for its being.
In cemeteries, respect for life and appreciation for its beauty.
