Unpaid Annotation
Desde la antiguedad, la tumba como monumento funerario representa la casa del muerto, entendida como ultima morada. Es tambien un reflejo de las creencias y la actitud del hombre ante la muerte. A pesar de vivir en una epoca que trata a la muerte con tanta ocultacion, la arquitectura del siglo XX no ha dejado de interesarse por el tema y ha contribuido con significativas aportaciones al lenguaje de la arquitectura funeraria. La ultima casa recoge una seleccion de 60 tumbas, intervenciones de pequena escala poco divulgadas, que son ejemplo de la amplia variedad de propuestas realizadas por arquitectos, desde principios de siglo hasta la actualidad. Se muestran tumbas realizadas por algunos de los maestros de la arquitectura del siglo XX, por arquitectos contemporaneos de consolidado prestigio y por jovenes arquitectos del actual panorama internacional. El texto introductorio, a cargo del arquitecto Pedro Azara, realiza un exhaustivo recorrido por la historia de la tumba desde la antiguedad hasta nuestros dias.
Long Description
From Antiquity onwards the tomb as a funerary monument depicts the house of the dead, taken to be our last resting place. The tomb also reflects mankind's beliefs and attitudes when faced with death. Despite living in a period that copes with death by trying to hide it, the architecture of the 20th century has never ceased taking an interest in the issue and has made significant contributions to the language of funerary architecture.
