Lantern Tree

His proposal of a hospice cum suicide rehabilitation centre is named ‘LANTERN TREE’ to encompass these two ancient practices. This design is structured like a tree with lanterns which celebrates the cycle of life and death of people. Like an organism, it breaths the life and death of those who dwell in it. When one patient passes away, a lantern will light up to celebrate his/her release from their pain. The spectacle of these lanterns changes in accordance to the life/death from within as time passes.
