Graduate Architecture

Diego Ramirez & Dario Sabidussi

Critic: Simon Kim, Spring 2021

Death in Architecture has for an extensive period been explored through the creation of memorials, cemeteries, mausoleums, and cenotaphs. Yet the increasing global environmental crisis has not fared well under the continuous practices for post death. The greater population often has greater needs that must be addressed through more substantial attempts. 

Ecological justice does not cease to exist when human life does. The Seneca Growth Complex attempts to incorporate and diminish the impact humans have by posthumously incorporating donators into new organic materials that will be used to grow, monitor, and sustain the native natural ecology of Seneca Village and of Greater Central Park.
