The life-cycle cocoon for rewilding burial grounds
Vote now

'Continuum' is a burial cocoon made from bio-materials that offers an elegant alternative to existing green burial products. The project focuses on the beauty of the life cycle and proposes a return to the collective. It honours the transitional nature of funeral ritual, with removable wings that ceremonially reveal the body adorned in biodegradable garments. Native seeds are embedded in the algae-based material of the wings, and begin to sprout as the wings, placed atop the gravesite, decompose. The natural garden completes the journey from individual to collective, rewilding the burial site.
