There is something intrinsically wrong with these

Final resting places shouldn't bear such a similarity to project homes. However, if houses for the dead are meant to provide the deceased with what they were accustomed to in life it does make some sense. Post mortem one-size-fits-alls for all - geometric enough to appear "modern" while being noncommittal enough to be inoffensive. I suppose there's not a lot of room for movement design wise when it comes to so small a client base as people wanting above ground internment, but I'm having trouble seeing any of that dignity or solemnity that the dead are meant to be afforded.
Also I'm not even sure where to start with that memorial garden. Is it a service station that's sprung a leak or an elaborate hotel swimming pool that's trying to be a bushland creek?
Departed loved ones deserve more, damnit!
