The House of the Dead

The House of the Dead, which is actually a house consisting of graves, was designed by architect Aldo Rossi. It is located in San Cataldo Cemetery in Italy.

The project of the house of dead, started 1972 and can be seen as quite modern and unique solution for a cemetery. Unfortunately is only partially completed. The house “windows” are actually the burial squares.
You can see a small video clip of the building here below
