Flop House

Students: David Eskenazi
Studio Title: Hernan Diaz Alonso Vertical Fall 2012
Instructor: Hernan Diaz Alonso

“There is a black which is old and a black which is fresh. Lustrous black and dull black, black in sunlight and black in shadow.” –Ad Reinhardt

Studio Title: Hernan Diaz Alonso Vertical Fall 2012
Instructor: Hernan Diaz Alonso

Fantastic Repose

Students: Ida Hammarlund, Alyse Sedlock
Studio Title: Hernan Diaz Alonso XLAB Fall2011
Instructor: Hernan Diaz Alonso

The Urban Burial Park and Cathedral acts as a new means of worship for the Catholic community of Los Angeles. The proposal is meant to evoke a new understanding of the experience intended for worship and for memorial of the dead. The need for green space as well as the lack of burial space within the city, determined the need for an urban burial park in Downtown LA.
