WHAT WE DO
The Urban Death Project has created an innovative new model of death care that honors both our loved ones and the planet earth. At the heart of this model is a new system called Recomposition that transforms bodies into soil so that we can grow new life after we die.
Recomposition Cores will be housed in community spaces designed to support the grieving and honor the dead. New soil will nourish gardens, reminding us that all life is interconnected.
We are architects, scientists, engineers, designers, legal strategists, and funeral directors. Together we are creating a transparent and sustainable new model of death care.
