Light, shade and cremation without burning products.

Moying Huang, a graduate of the Royal College of Art in London, developed the Funeral Futures environmentally friendly crematorium project, which can be used to carry out liquid cremation without emissions, which are formed during traditional body burning processes.

This alternative form of burial suggests that the body of the deceased is dissolved in a special fluid in a few hours. The bones remaining after this process are burned to ashes. The author of the project claims that in the crematorium built according to her project, the service of turning this ash into a sculpture or accessory will be available for the bereaved.

As in the usual crematorium, the dust can be buried in the columbarium located right there – or dispel from a special platform over the Thames. You can also use this ash to plant a tree sapling in the crematorium near the chapel.

An eco-crematorium can be built on a closed coal power plant on Lots Road in Chelsea. The architect proposed to leave intact the preserved features of a dilapidated building and add mezzanines and platforms for those who wish to spend the deceased on their last journey.

According to Huang, despite the futuristic nature of the project, “it still protects the need for intimacy, privacy, rituals and ceremonies that every family deserves.”
