This is fascinating.
I’m assuming you already know what Burning Man is, but I wanted to paint the picture in words:
Every year at the end of summer people from all over come to the middle of the empty desert in southwest America and assemble a fully functioning town for about a week’s use, then completely disassemble it and leave to resume their everyday lives, leaving little to no trace that anything had ever been there.
It’s just bizarre to think about, really; the architecture – less in the building sense but more in the organizational sense. The draw of people and machines and ideas and exchange, the very defined temporal space within which it’s contained. Organized and defined by it’s lack of permanence.
