Islev Church
Inger and Johannes Exner
Copenhagen, Denmark

Funeral Home in Sant Joan Despí
Batlle i Roig Arquitectes
Barcelona, Spain

Spanish architects Batlle i Roig have always been internationally recognized for their fantastic work in landscape architecture. Their buildings are no less interesting as this new funeral home located in Sant Joan Despí competently illustrates. The building features the kind of class and simplicity in architecture that you might appreciate in many modern classic buildings, yet combined with great contemporary landscape design.
