These are the preliminary architecture and design plans for a “Rainbow Dream Temple” being collaboratively produced by a group of creatives for the Maui Source event in early 2012 ( http://sourcemaui.com ):
The temple space is intended to inspire sacred space, and will host a wedding ceremony and several workshops on dreams and rainbow physics. It will be constructed mostly of bamboo poles painted white, and will overlook one of the most gorgeous ocean views on the island of Maui.
The 42º vertical angle is inspired by a fact of optical physics: that rainbows are perceptible at a 40º – 42º angle of observation in relation to the light of the sun (when proper percipitation is also present).
