the architecture of death

A little morbid, perhaps, but I reckon a forward-thinking architect might think a wee bit about the last bit of architecture they leave on the planet: namely, their grave. Interestingly, I couldn't find anything on R.M. Schindler's grave. Cremation?

Adolf Loos (1870-1933)

Giuseppe Perugini (1914-1995)
