The Funeral Parlour On the Hill

The Funeral Parlour On the Hill

I’m Tianyu Zhang, and  I have designed a funeral parlour project that focuses on helping emotional healing through algorithmic-based natural perception.

My research question is How can the negative emotional experience of the funeral parlour building typology be mitigated and enhanced by naturalistic design interventions?

In this case, Grasshopper assisted in the whole process of scheme testing and iterative development of digital modelling.
