Abstract

This study is an investigation into the history of the American cemetery landscape, primarily focusing on the rural garden cemetery and the memorial park typologies. The purpose is to gain a better understanding of the components and design intent of each. From this study a new typology of cemetery emerges, focused on multi-functionality, memorialization, as well as both civic and environmental interactions.
