Thinking ahead: minimalist architecture to enjoy before and after (?) death

German architect Roland Poppensieker created a minimal concrete tomb ". . . close to a pond in the Ohlsdorf Cemetery in Hamburg, Germany, which is reputed to be the world’s greatest park cemetery . . .  by order of the Hamburgian photographer and art collector F.C. Gundlach – in his lifetime – as his last house."

Go to +Mood to read more and see how a photograph by the future inhabitant was laser-engraved into the concrete – a stunning idea.

I couldn't find mention of what the photographer resides in while still among the quick, but I would bet it leans toward Modern. – GF
