The Lakewood Cemetery Garden Mausoleum is a masterpiece of memorial architecture. Join the Expert Designers for an exclusive tour of this architectural gem led by the architects who designed it. Joan Soranno, design principal and John Cook, project architect, of HGA Architects and Engineers have designed a unique building that must be experienced to be truly appreciated. Built into a hillside with garden views and glimpses of sunlight and sky, the spaces are intimate, filled with light and made with exquisite materials.

The tour will begin in the historic Lakewood Memorial Chapel and continue across the street in the newly completed Mausoleum. Joan and John will explain the design process and welcome questions during the tour of the building and gardens. Since its completion in 2012, the Mausoleum has received numerous national and international awards. This is a rare opportunity to explore the creative process that resulted in a contemporary public building of extraordinary quality.
