Modern Tomb [EOL in Art 31]

Pedro Dias designed “Family Tomb in the Açor Mountains” to have the interior as an open space, accessible to all, equipped with a bench, which serves both as such as well as a surface for placing the coffin during the mentioned funeral ritual. The contemplative “spatial void” fulfills the “emotional void” caused by a feeling of loss.
