The issue number 33 of the magazine "En Blanco" is entirely dedicated to exploring spaces intended for Farewell, focusing on contemporary funerary architecture. Through nine architectural examples, the magazine takes us on a journey that spans different cultures and regions, from the East to the West, and from individual tombs to expansive cemeteries. These works have been designed by architects who, during their lifetime, have tackled the challenge of creating spaces to honor and bid farewell to the deceased.

At first glance, some of these funerary typologies might seem universal, as if they could be transferred and adapted from one culture to another without losing their essence. However, it is essential to understand that, although they all focus on the act of farewell, the perception of death and the associated rituals vary significantly from one culture to another.

Beyond the physical and spatial dimensions, funerary architecture delves into the depths of the emotional, the spiritual, the ceremonies, and the symbolism surrounding death. These intertwined elements turn these spaces into places full of meaning and reflection, where architecture transcends its practical function to become a space of introspection and existential connection with the cycle of life and death.
