The concept of crematorium.
We use corten steel for the decoration of the facades of the building. Such steel does not require painting or other maintenance. The main material in the interior is terracotta-colored concrete which is combined with the facades of the building. The idea of the interior in the unity of external and internal materials.
The shape of the building is a square with a circle inscribed in it. Where the square is a symbol of orderliness and symbolizes the four-stage basic life-temporal processes: four seasons, days, four stages of life – childhood, youth, maturity, old age. And the circle is a symbol of the sky and the sun, infinity, and eternity. It personifies and reveals the essence of eternity and finitude, their inseparable unity because by its formation it demonstrates: infinity in that where the beginning coincides with the end, where completion is carried out at the exit point. More simply, where there is a beginning, there is an end – this is the meaning of infinity.
