Architecture of Ashes visits the Duisburg Crematorium

Last week we visited the crematorium of Duisburg in Germany with an exceptional team this time, one member from Switzerland and one from the Netherlands. We were shown around by the architect Jutta Heinze and the interview with her was very interesting. Again it was intriguing to notice the differences between the cremation cultures in Europe. There even was a bit of CSI this time around.

The Duisburg crematory was constructed around an existing older crematorium. The marriage between the old and the new is very effective. During our visit the outdoor ceiling was missing. It had recently suffered quite some water damage and we hope this will be restored soon. Luckily for us the building was never the less a pleasure to see!
