The Temple of Descendants is no more. Here is the project organizer Ross Asseslstine, talking about the engineering and architecture that goes into the Temple design, less than a month ago. Ironically, he begins his lecture with disparaging comments about David Best‘s engineering capability without him.
As bizarre as it seems that Burning Man would announce the Temple before closing the deal for it, it seems even more bizarre that Ross would be out in the community giving lectures about it to colleges, while still trying to agree on terms with BMOrg. He seems like someone passionate about what he’s doing, we hope that he will continue to contribute to the Burner community in the future.
