Death and loss have been a long-running driving force behind many of mankind’s most influential architectural accomplishments. From a grand mausoleum to an ancient Egyptian pyramid, the act of remembering those that have passed on can be an important architectural statement.

Bee Breeders have partnered with Riga City Council, calling for submissions for a columbarium to be designed in one of the most iconic cemeteries in the world, Forest Cemetery in Riga, Latvia. The ‘Columbarium – The Chamber of Memories’ will look to accommodate 500 niches for family memorials, allowing loved ones to be laid to rest in the company of some of Latvia’s most influential figures.

The City Council is considering construction of this columbarium, and therefore is asking that designs involve green practices as well as sustainable and durable materials, while also considering landscape and overarching designs for the entire site.

The 'Columbarium - The Chamber of Memories' competitions is open until November 3, with a prize fund of 10,000€ to be awarded on February 16, 2022.
