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.
