Plan De Tempelhof

The Tempelhof A work of art in and of itself

De Tempelhof,  1995 + is  since 2018 the  Youngest Cultural Heritage in the Netherlands. The Tempelhof, a laboratory of the ‘ new thinking ‘  is a work of art in and of itself: a holistic concept of buildings, garden and statues by the married artists Adelheid and Huub Kortekaas. In 1995, Adelheid designed the basis for the house and garden, and together they perfected and built the Tempelhof between 1995 and 1999.

 

The Tempelhof forms the crystallisation of chaos and love. It is a poetic chronicle of their life-long quest, oriented towards the longing for harmony and meaning in their lives and work. It is a mirror of their lives, of breathing along with the rhythms and structures in nature. The Tempelhof as Gesammt Kunstwerk is inspired by the “physical dimension of the human being”. It is the symbiosis of the interplay between reality and illusion, between Truth and Fiction. In extending 3×33+1, they became fascinated by the play of numbers, and numbers such as 111, 333, 666, 777, and 999 became metaphors for reality reminiscent of quantum physics.

In the design of the Tempelhof, in the mid-90s, the interplay of hidden structures and numbers became more profound. For example, the entire plot is surrounded by a 3.33-metre-high hedge and ninety-nine trees. On either side of the almost entirely closed-off façade there is a field with 33 Seedlings, which refer to the project The Unifying Spiritual Field of the World. By applying symbolic measurements and using symbols in both house and garden as works of art, a unique reality is created and a harmonic Gesamtkunstwerk (total artwork) is brought into existence.

The Tempelhof is built as if it were moving on a long axis, a metaphor for the vertical line of the human body. This all-connecting axis starts with the monumental steel wire gate “Utopia” (the head), and ends at the monumental 7.77-metre-high temple-bloom “Apocalypse” (the feet). At the heart of this temple there grows a Golden Flower, inspired by the horizontal and vertical “Dimension of Man” (1.8 metres). Water bubbles from the Flower, and this sound flows together with cosmic tones. Here humanity stands at the source of all life. The Temple is like the ‘Oracle of Delphi’, which bore the inscription: Know Thyself.
The Tempelhof as Gesamtkunstwerk is a reflection of the modern human on the path to a new universal view of humanity and the world, on the path to a New Renaissance.
