A Modern Mortuary in Munich

In the tenth-century district of Riem, on the far eastern edge of the city of Munich, sits the Mortuary at Munich–Riem (Friedhof-Riem). Designed by architects Andreas Meck and Stephan Koppel, the complex is comprised of unassuming buildings that conjure a decidedly modern last resting place.

From afar, the Mortuary at Munich-Riem seems foreboding, suggesting the standing remnants of a bygone communist design. The rough exterior of untreated concrete is set in cantilever, creating dark horizontal crevices along the facade.
