Designed by Spanish architecture studio Juan Carlos Salas, ‘Tanatorium’ is a striking minimalist morgue made of white concrete located in Zaragoza, Spain. The building has a unique geometric form and features a chimney that filters in sunlight with the aim of creating a “feeling of time passing by”. In a statement about the project, the architects say, “The ‘Tanatorium’ frames very important feelings of its users through the evocation of God and the cavern… Though a formal gesture, this concrete cavern opens in diagonal direction to the sun, worshipping this primitive god.”
