Blank Canvas for Artists and Architects – Burning Man Festival

Burning Man festival 2017

Burning Man is a fabled annual gathering organized as a traditional event for fanatical artists, architects, and individuals who want to leave banality of the society behind.


Burning Man Festival happens once a year at Black Rock Desert, Nevada, U.S. It is claimed to be originated back in 1986 as a bonfire event on the summer solstice where a bunch of friends met and burnt wooden sculpture of a man and a small dog. Now it makes sense with the name. This community encourages the ideology of self-expression and creativity in architects and artists.

The architect behind this plan was Rod Garrett who happened to be a close friend of the founder, Will Roger. Mr. Garett had built this famous Black Rock City, in concentric semi-circles. The layout is made in an iconic horseshoe appearance.

Black Rock City, in concentric semi-circles

A genius plan of creating a city which was expressive, practical and inspirational to all its burners (participants of the festival).

Mr. Garett started with the to-do list of 200 initial inputs from the founders and began to put his efforts to cover as many as he could. He sketched the semi-circle with the wooden man sculpture in the center and other radial roads around it, after this, everything fell into place.

This festival has been successfully gathering artists, free-spirits, architects and self-expressive individuals every passing year. In a recent 2017 event, there were around 70,000 people from all over the globe.

The architecture is a form of art and architect is a creator. Some of the interesting sights below were displayed at the event showcase the intelligence and the creativity of the architect.
