No matter how unfortunate it is, death is a part of life. It is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about death, but have you ever realised that someone has to design cemeteries? Or how a beautiful graveyard can help the grieving process? According to Ada Wille, owner of Ada Wille Begraafplaats en Landschapsarchitectuur (cemetery and landscape architecture), the main purpose of a graveyard is to help the bereaved with mourning. “The essence of a good design is that the visitor can and is allowed to mourn, but leave with an enlightened sense of relief.”
