The death pavilion was inspired from Central American pyramids constructed for Aztec death rituals. These pyramids commanded respect and fear. The elements of mass, color, and texture all play a role in dictating this fear. Mass is used to show power through natural stone with mullions spanning upwards of 70 feet. Dark neutrals emphasize the significance of the ritual as well as the structure itself. Cold, jagged, natural cut stone give the building ferocious texture. This building accomplishes the goals of creating a modern Aztec death pavilion, and a functioning religious space for somber devotion.
