A Crack That Stitches

This project explores the notion of crack for a design proposal for a cemetery and a memorial to the COVID Pandemic on the island of Poveglia near Venice. A crack separates and disconnects but at the same time helps uncover a latent layer of entities buried under the surface. In this proposal “Crack” acts as a connective tissue tying various programs on the site. A crack results from the shifting of tectonic plates. It’s a window to our past and helps us to conserve the idea of memory and loss that the current pandemic poses to each of us.
