Description   Kaze-no-Oka Crematorium has a fluid appearance that blends smoothly with the surrounding ancient burial mounds and cemetery. Starting with the building approach, transitional spaces are emphasized; each ceremonial function space (funeral hall, cemetery, and waiting lounge) is kept at a specific distance from the next to allow for pause and reflection. On the exterior, a different geometry and materiality was given to each section. The use of these different materials - brick, Corten steel, and concrete - also allows the building to be read as a sculpture in the park.
