Burning Man reveals 2020 temple design

Colorado architect Renzo Verbeck and artist Sylvia Adrienne Lisse have designed an eight-pointed angular structure to serve as the temple at the 2020 Burning Man Festival. Called Empyrean, the pavilion will form the centrepiece of the temporary Black Rock City during the annual gathering. It will be burned on the final day along with the namesake "man" and other structures built on the "playa". Laurence "Renzo" Verbeck, the founder and principal of Verbeck Design Studio in Boulder, Colorado and project partner Lisse, an artist with experience constructing large scale art installations, were among a number of teams that vied to design the 2020 temple. It is named Empyrean, which refers to a region beyond the physical realm said to be the birthplace of fire. "Empyrean represents the region just beyond our physical realm that is the highest center of wisdom, and the source of energy-consciousness," the design team said. "In ancient cosmologies, Empyrean is the realm of pure light that is believed to be the birthplace of fire."
