This review is only for the building itself.
We attended the Summer Solstice concerts yesterday.
The concerts were fun but the venue is something else.
I've never been to a columbarium before. This one is something else.
I felt like I had fallen down Alice in Wonderland's rabbit hole.
It is totally surreal.
There are three levels and there are sections where you can peek up and down.
There are floor to ceiling Chambers"chambers" (don't know the correct name--basically glass shelves or drawers with the loved ones ashes) . The ceiling must be 15-20 feet high.
Almost every room has a skylight. There are many many rooms and the whole design is like an endless labyrinth.
There are benches everywhere and sinks, sheers and vases for the surviving loved ones to cut stems of the flowers .
There is a wide variety of crypts. Many contain book-shaped urns with the person's birth and death dates. Some have a line etched in (i.e.. "Loved forever"). All of these book like urns make you feel like you are in some GIANT library.
The glass enclosed "crypts" often contain photos, or other mementos of the departed evoking ofrenda like qualities.
I can't say I'm a fan of cemeteries but this columbarium is worth a visit just to be amazed by it's vast array of crypts.
