The Temple Completed

Wednesday morning. Check out he one wheel snail trail. The Temple of Direction by Geordie Van Der Bosch is organized linearly. It recreates a restricted passage which expands in the center into a large hall. This is a response to the openness of the playa; it creates a space traveled end to end; versus wandering an open plan; this temple provides direction and focus. Linearity also reflects the passage of life; all lives have a beginning, a middle and an end which metaphorically is included in this temple’s form. Following this metaphor a variety of spaces are created; narrow spaces and wide spaces, dark spaces and bright spaces. Tunnels create intimate experiences with shade.. A large central hall expands in width and height providing a bright area suitable for gatherings.
