Time Gate / public architecture

Time Gate
Time Gate

As a new-style graveyard spatial architecture, Timegate takes full advantage of the change in sunlight angle of a day, from sunrise to sunset. This ensures the photo of the dead placed within the glasses of the tomb can be reflected onto the ground throughout the day. The space helps to transform sadness of the living into good wishes and recall of the dead. The timegate gives the living the sense as if their relatives were still living in the world.
