Tabitha, of DS26, dies in 2088… ‘pouring’ party scheduled.

Posted in #letsblogoff by DS26 on 01.04.2011

Tabitha, of DS26, dies at 107 on this month of March of 2088.

She was found with a smile, but forehead on table with the signature black ‘lePen’ (now only found at their shop) in hand, at their offices in the more recently formed island of “Las Olas”.

Her ashes were cremated, as requested to save square footage, and will be dropped into the foundation mix of the newest High Tech Center, one of a group of education facilities she spent her whole life conceptualizing and developing.

Concrete foundations are no longer common-place, but she insisted an exception be made upon her passing. She also suggested a ‘pouring’ party, now scheduled.

She leaves behind a very young BobbyZ, now 104, their pet JadaZ III, and no children but a legacy of architecture, education, and music.


In “Las Olas Times” :

“Newest High Tech Center, developed, designed and built by famed award-winning firm DS26, had its concrete foundation slabs tested. It has been found that a new super bioconcrete material was developed at curing.

No one knows how, yet, and further investigation is necessary.

BobbyZ, the elusive co-founder of DS26, was not found for comment.”

    Hilarious Tabitha, yes, be part of a building. all architects should make a pledge to become foundation materials… who wants to just biodegrade in nature?! very clever, cindy @urbanverse

    Never thought about putting my ashes into concrete … would you get a LEED credit for that?

      hahaha… can’t get more bio- than that right?

      ~ cheers to you!

    Hmmmm, maybe I should be cremated and added to tung oil for a hand-rubbed oil finish on a piece of my own furniture!

    That would be a cool thing if building foundations were designed with a small cap and empty space that people could buy to hold their ashes. Then they could be a part of a building forever. Like those sidewalk cellar doors urban neighborhood bars have to shove the cases of beer down the basement from the trucks. Well, not really like that but that was the mental image I got as I was writing this :-)

      my thought was in the mix itself (since concrete’s makeup is essentially powder+liquid)… thanks for your comment. :)

    Well, if you’re adding your ashes to concrete for the sake of sustainability, you also need to make sure the crematorium where you go up in flames uses that heat to generate electricity. That ‘body heat’ oughta be worth at least 2 LEED credits somewhere.

      right?… thanks for the comment. :)

    Wow… this reminds me… if I live to be 100, I’m now closer to that date than the day of my birth, seeing how I just turned 51! Hmmmm….

    Allison, cracking up on the LEED credit comment!

    • 26at41 said, on 01.07.2011 at 08:48

      uufffh… and yeah, that LEED keeps popping up…. i will point out im not much of a fan of certification. i prefer the living building challenge.
      thanks for your comment still. :)

  7. […] education is a great part of my calling. I want to educate through Arts+Sciences. I mentioned in my “death” the High Tech […]

    Dying with a smile on your face, pen in hand-
    Of all the obituaries I’ve read this evening, THAT is how I want to go!

    (Now the ashes-in-the-foundation thing is a bit to mob-style for my tastes, but whatever.)

      lol… i just cant buy the whole burial & grieving on site thing… but to each its own.
      Thank you for your comment. :)
