Igualada Cemetery -for the dead and live

Igualada Cemeteryis situated at Barcelona Spain and designed by Enric Miralles and Carme Pinos.

Igualada cemetery is not designed as a traditional burial ground for the dead, however emphasized on cycle of life.
The steel pole providing a curving path from the entrance.
