Ross House, Cape Town, South Africa

I loved the set up of this installation, the glass partitions expose the house to the wonderful sun of Cape Town. Antonio Zaninovic was the studio to create this villa. Zaninovic himself is from Chile and currently lives in Cape Town where his firm resides. In this house apart from the clean architectural arrangement, the interior design aspect was matched with the surroundings effortlessly. The house next door, with a twist. Enjoy.

Cemetery Overcrowding Around the World

“Cemetery overcrowding is an issue that resonates around the world, particularly in its most cramped cities and among religions that forbid or discourage cremation. The reality of relying on finite land resources to cope with the endless stream of the dying has brought about creative solutions. One space-saving option is to put graves on top of each other, separated by a concrete divider, and have a shared headstone. This is common among couples and even whole families. A second option is stacking the dead above ground into niches built into walls, a bit like in a morgue, but adorned with headstones. A third, revolutionary option is to be buried in a building where each floor resembles a traditional cemetery. Cemetery towers have been proposed for Paris and Mumbai. In Mexico City, there is another big project in the works: the Tower for the Dead, which will combine a vertical necropolis and an 820-foot-deep (250-meter-deep) subterranean complex. Currently in Mexico City, families are forced to exhume and remove their relatives’ remains after a period of years. Unclaimed remains may be reburied as unmarked loose bones beneath the fresh grave, or piled with others on exposed altars”. – The Associated Press

In this September 17, 2014 photo, relatives watch as the body of a mother and sister is exhumed to free up space for a new burial, at a nearly-full San Isidro cemetery in northern Mexico City. The woman’s body was to be reburied in her husband’s grave in a different area. With cemeteries rapidly reaching capacity in one of the world’s biggest cities, families are forced to exhume and remove their relative’s remains after a period of several years. Remains unclaimed by relatives may be reburied as unmarked loose bones beneath the fresh grave, or piled with others on exposed altars. (Photo by Rebecca Blackwell/AP Photo)
