Geodesic Temple is Disorient's interpretation of an ancient gathering space. Geodesic Temple is a new language with a one-word vocabulary (octahedron) and a grammar (octahedra connection) with which new meanings can be constructed. It is a modular structure--composed of human sized octahedra--that rises above the playa and provides a beacon for community. From a distance the Temple seems complex, but the viewer encounters a fundamental shift upon discovering the simplicity of the components. This challenge to expectation inspires, opens the mind, embodies the Burning Man spirit and acts as a Rite of Passage.
