An Afterlife Tower in Hong Kong / Arch Tower-A New Typology

An Afterlife Tower in Hong Kong

Hong Kong, with over 7.3 million people in a 2,754-square-kilometer territory, is one of the most densely populated places in the world. The lack of space, along with a large concentration of individuals is always a difficulty inherent in buying a home, and burying our beloved.
Due to the lack of residence, real estate value has spiked, and burial ground has remained insufficient. The rate of cremation reaches 90 percent, so there is always a shortage of cremation urn, in which people place the ashes of their ancestors, and of the columbarium holding the urns.
