Pruned: The Hanging Cemetery of Babylon

Now ive started architecture (again) at uni im struggling with balencing the oppurtinites of being a studient (projects dont really need to be build – and can be highly symbolic) and the aim of actually learning some of the skills a “real” architect needs (intermit understanding of space, light, scale etc)

““a gigantic presence of a hanging funeral structure” that will hover above the war torn streets of Baghdad, floating unceasingly “from bright explosive mornings to airless night hours,” and lush with growth from an endless supply of dead Iraqis.

“Day by day, nearly hourly, it updates its assimilating heavy stocks, a statistic of a hundred thousand Iraqi corpses or maybe twenty five thousand.”
