Graves Reached using GPS Proposed for Bushland Cemetery near Sydney

Words by CHROFI

The bereaved will be able to find the location of their loved ones' graves using GPS in this cemetery without headstones, proposed by Australian firms CHROFI and McGregor Coxall for Sydney (+ slideshow).

The pioneering cemetery model stems from the firms' belief that attitudes towards death are changing as society becomes increasingly secular, and that the funeral industry must offer new forms of remembrance outside the existing graveyard setup.

Architects CHROFI and landscape architects McGregor Coxall proposed the Acacia Remembrance Sanctuary for a patch of protected bushland on the outskirts of Sydney.

Here, the deceased would be buried in unmarked graves and their location tracked by visitors to the 10-hectare-site using GPS.
