This proposal was developed to house a chapel and 24 interior crypt spaces for a family of European origin. The principle idea was to suspend the crypts above a floor of gold mosaic in order to float them in a luminous light. The mausoleum exterior was to be mounded with earth to form a hidden interior space for the family and act as a bookend to a public courtyard.
