Bartlett School of Architecture student Sam Coulton has designed a concept for a sustainable alternative to cremation to help Londoners confront death.

Called London Physic Gardens: A New London Necropolis, Coulton's proposal, which he created on his MAarch course at the Bartlett, involves building a new city of the dead where Chelsea's pleasure gardens once stood.

Here, the city's corpses wrapped in blue-printed shrouds would be used to grow plants for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, with the dye leaching into the water cycle to slowly stain the city a cerulean colour.
