Burial sites receive less visitors every year because of the decrease in burials.
An increasing number of people choose a cremation. Burial sites more often then not, do have the necessary means or place to store ashes. Scattering places and columbariums are outdated.
Scattering of the ashes in nature often takes place without the necessary consent and furthermore has a grave impact on nature due to non-biodegradable items like metal and rich mineral concentrations in cremated remains.
From an emotional point of view, relatives often do not want to scatter the ashes because they judge the process of scattering as an irreversible and definitive event that further diminishes the little physical memory that's still left. Furthermore, relatives often want a place to grieve and bring up memories.
The Memorial Cube can host 3.700 urns, in a space that occupies only 15 square metres. Besides that, the monument offers many ways to memorize loved ones which will have a positive effect on the number of visitors.
The storage of ashes further prevents a negative impact on the environment.
