Matt Au - 2015 Branner Fellowship Arch Lecture

Matthew Au, Alive not Dead
Matthew Au has a Bachelors of Science, Economics from University of Washington, Seattle.
Au seeks to explore possible solutions of integrating the place of burial into our densely packed urban fabrics, whether it be in the form of a cemetery or columbarium, working in harmony with the existing city context. It will examine both contemporary and traditional burial systems; with consideration to cultural and economic means, while understanding methodologies for patterns of densification, and how architecture can be applied to this otherwise urban/landscape issue.
