CITY OF THE DEAD FOREST TEMPLE
Dating back to pagan traditions, Latvians hold death as very sacred, as they honor the dead through celebration of life during their festivities.
Duality and dependence exist between life and death, as without life, there is no death and vice versa.
The latter is reflected spatially into interplay between void and mass; as void is nothing but defined by what’s around it. Death, therefore, occupies mass and life the void, and the space becomes a transitional space, a raised temple surrounded by death having life at the center.
