A house for our dead loved ones
“You will always exists in the universe in some form”
Shunryu Suzuki Roshi
Jacaranda is a genus of 49 species of flowering plants in the family Bignoniaceae, native to tropical and subtropical regions of Central America, South America, Cuba, Hispaniola, Jamaica and the Bahamas. It has been planted widely in Asia, especially in Nepal. It is also quite common in South Africa and Zimbabwe. It has been introduced to most tropical and subtropical regions. The species are shrubs to large trees ranging in size from 20 to 30 m (66 to 98 ft) tall. The leaves are bipinnate in most species, pinnate or simple in a few species. The flowers are produced in conspicuous large panicles, each flower with a five-lobed blue to purple-blue corolla; a few species have white flowers. Jacarandas turn into bare branches in winter, beautiful flowers bloom in spring, and cast fresh shadows in summer-autumn: the circles of life and death in nature... A living metaphor of roofs and columns in architecture. The best of two worlds.
