In the Lindens
The garden is a symbol for paradise: the grave as the original garden and hortus conclusus, where the dead can rest in peace.
The different uses of the linden represent an ornamental choice, defining space and offering shade. Focusing on only one type of plant for the cemetery’s design marks a strong contrast to the colourful small gardens on the graves. The different varieties of linden refer to the neighbouring city square and its existing linden. The trees form a bridge between the introverted cemetery and the city outside.
