Burning Man 2023 isn’t for a few more months but planning is already well underway. This year will see a new temple called Temple of the Heart creating the look like an upsidedwon dessert flower. Designed by Ela Madej and Reed Finlay the team worked hard to incorporate many principles into the temple. From the Burning Man Journal
The structure is based on a 12-star base; the central gathering space is the Heart Chamber. Traditional floral lace patterns from Eastern Europe — inspired by Ela’s Polish heritage — will be used on the ceiling panels.
The center of the Heart Chamber features the Rose Altar, a prominent decorative element that will be back-lit to emit a soft glow. It will include approximately 100 large and medium-sized roses and hundreds of smaller flowers created by Temple volunteers and community members. The Altar is situated on a star-shaped elevation that connects all the way up to an external spire that represents the stem, sending the energy of the space upwards.
