_‘the design intention was to create a vivid spatial sequence, beginning with the long approach through the tunnel in order to heighten anticipation of the statue, which is invisible from the outside,’_ tadao ando explains in an essay for domus magazine._ ‘when the hall is reached, visitors look up at the buddha, whose head is encircled by a halo of sky at the end of the tunnel.’_
ando categorizes the work as a piece of landscape architecture, with its appearance changing depending on the time of year. in spring and summer the site is filled with verdant greenery and vibrant lavender, while in winter months, the cemetery is draped in a blanket of snow. learn more about the project here, and visit the cemetery’s website for more details.
