See A Sneak Peak At Burning Man’s 2019 Temple

|||

Burning Man is one of the more iconic festivals out there. Every year they have a tradition of building a massive temple as part of their temporary city at Black Rock City and then burning it at the end of the weeklong celebration. Now they’ve unveiled the temple that will appear on the playa in 2019.

Every year they open up submissions from the community to select the temple design for the coming year’s event. They’ve selected architect Geordie Van Der Bosch this time for his design named “The Temple of Direction.”

The Temple of Direction is a linear space, capturing the elegance and austerity of the torii gates at Fushimi Inari Shrine in Japan, where the artist has previously lived.

The linear lines form a passage that expands into a large hall, eliciting both a physical experience and a metaphorical journey. It’s a space that responds to the openness of the playa by creating a framework that encourages you to travel from end to end.

This linear form reflects the passage of life with its beginning, middle, and end. Throughout the structure there are areas that reflect this journey: narrow & wide spaces, bright & dark spaces, and tunnels that create intimate physical settings. Meanwhile, a large central hall, an altar, and many shelves for offerings create the setting for our collective experience. – via Burning Man Journal

The next Burning Man gathering will take place August 25 – September 2, 2019. Check out the design below and enjoy!
