Form4 Architecture unveils design for Intertwined Eternities, a columbarium in Aptos, California

The Form4 Architecture studio has recently challenged itself with a project characterised by a strong evocative value: Intertwined Eternities, a columbarium designed for the Episcopal Church of St. John the Baptist in Aptos, California. A project where architecture and nature "intertwine” to reach a state of perfect balance and where the design gestures of the columbarium are meant to hold the living in a metaphorical embrace. Accommodated by the fluid geometry of the architecture and accompanied by natural light and the surrounding landscape, visitors find solace to soothe the sense of loss of their loved ones.

Böhm is the author of numerous public and private buildings, as well as of over sixty churches, some of which rank among the most important examples of 20th century sacred architecture. Among these, the best known is certainly the Sanctuary of Mary Queen of Peace built in Neviges, in Germany, and considered the architect’s masterpiece.
