WHAT WE DO
The Urban Death Project is researching an innovative new system of death care that honors both our loved ones and the planet earth. This system - called Recomposition - transforms bodies into soil so that we can grow new life after we die.
We are architects, scientists, engineers, legal strategists, and funeral directors. Together we are laying the foundation for an environmentally sustainable death care system.

PROOF OF CONCEPT

We are laying the groundwork so that someday, people will be able to choose recomposition instead of cremation or burial. Eventually, we hope there will be places in our cities where we can return our loved ones to the earth naturally.
