Besonders eindrucksvoll ist das Innere des Gebäudes. Eine große Säulenhalle bietet Platz für die Gedanken und das Gedenken.
The inner space, the high hall, which has been compared to Stonehenge, Carnac or the Mosque at Cordoba. Twenty-nine concrete supports, smooth as marble, rise from the ground like trees at irregular intervals, and give structure to the rectangular Hall of the Dead. Here their tops have circular crowns of daylight where they break through the ceiling, and a mirror-like circular pool lies in the centre of this vast grove of pillars.
The geometrical clarity and the control of material and light in the crematorium is breathtaking.
