Woodland Cemetery

Erik Gunnar Asplund, Sigurd Lewerentz

Stockholm, Sweden

1961

Over two hundred acres of carefully landscaped serenity dotted with chapels, this place has become an archetype for the design of cemeteries world wide. The entire site expresses a very particular attitude towards the ideas of both life and death while providing an expansive environment in which visitors may spend time removed from the stresses and distractions of the world beyond Woodland's gates.

orientation

The principal aim and indeed achievement of Woodland is to define a zone distinct from the world at large which can act as a sanctuary both for the memories of the dead and for those who need the mental and physical space in which to deal with loss and mortality. Taking the form of a wooded landscape uncluttered with the usual architecture of remembrance has enabled Woodland to occupy as neutral and unsigned an environment as possible. It provides time, space and quiet, the three greatest luxuries in contemporary life and three three most crucial elements in enabling deep orientation.
