Project Work Status: Completed Projects

Area: 1700 Sq M

Project Completed: Dec-2010

Life itself, it is said, is a journey - in multitude shades of 'Grey' It is only at Death that the "Black & White" of one's Journey is truly revealed in crystalline clarity The project for the redevelopment & augmentation of the Jagannath Shankar Seth (JSS) Crematoria is rendered entirely in Black & White - as the expression of this the final moment, and the journey beyond.

New requirements included extending the covered roofing, introducing gas-fired crematoria, reorganizing and rationalising locations for the sequence of rituals / etc.

The new Ritualistic Pathways - in stark White, is punctuated by voids - that serve the dual purpose of expressing loss - as well as of dramatizing the columns of light that illuminate the Black of the Pyres.

It is a place of solemnity, profoundity, of reflection, and of the celebration of the cycle of release and rebirth - of the Black and of the White.
