Germany’s New Great Pyramid to be ‘very efficient cemetery’

“We have seen four different interpretations of the pyramid – they are all interesting concepts,” Rem Koolhaas said.

“In the West, we have been very phobic about death, but because of demographics, death will be imposed on all of us.

“There is a constant ageing process – it’s important that this issue is addressed and it’s a very graphic way of dealing with the topic of death. I’m curious to find out what happens in the end,” Mr Koolhaas said.
