Aldo Rossi's 'City for the Dead' in Modena, Italy, stands as a largely unfinished project in which Rossi explores the thematic elements put forth in his book 'Architecture of the City', primarily the forms of memory and meaning. The project was originally won as a competition in collaboration with Gianni Braghieri in 1972. Construction began in 1978 and to this day stands at roughly fifty percent completion. The site was originally to contain the ossuary cube and a series of rib-like buildings, which terminated in a cone housing the communal graves.
