Land Art Generator Initiative: LAGI 2020 Fly Ranche Burning Man Project Design Challenge

Burning Man Project and the Land Art Generator have partnered to launch a multi-disciplinary design challenge—LAGI 2020 Fly Ranch—that will create the foundational infrastructure of Fly Ranch.

Creatives will be invited to propose their regenerative artwork in this unique and stunning landscape—including dynamic and protected human habitation; places for learning and scientific discovery; venues of self-expression, immersive events, and artworks in nature; permacultural systems for food and organic products; regenerative infrastructures for water harvesting and recycling; and sustainable energy generation from solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, and other means.

In 2021, selected design teams will be provided an honoraria grant and be invited to build a prototype on site.

The Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) brings forward new energy infrastructures that are works of art—expressions of culture that strive to reinforce the beauty and ecology of their surroundings. The great global energy transition that is required to stem the tide of climate change will have an impact on our built environment and our visual landscapes like no other technical shift since the automobile. What will these new infrastructures look like?

LAGI 2020 Fly Ranch will expand on this portfolio of blueprints for the future by challenging creative interdisciplinary teams to propose artworks in the ambitious spirit of Burning Man that will provide the food, water, shelter, power, and closed-loop systems for life on Fly Ranch.

Each August, the annual Burning Man event transforms a desolate corner of northern Nevada into a thriving temporary metropolis fueled by creativity, experimentation, and awe. In 2016, the organization behind this city acquired Fly Ranch, a 3,800 acre property just north of the event site.

This property is home to dozens of hot and cold springs, three geysers, acres of wetlands, dozens of animal species, and more than 100 identified types of plants. The Fly Ranch project is an opportunity to create a year-round rural incubator for Burning Man culture and a catalyst for innovation and creativity in the world.

To host residencies, gatherings, and projects at Fly Ranch, the site will need infrastructure. We could bring generators, bottled water, packaged food, tents, and dispose of our waste off-site, but why would we do that when we have the opportunity to mobilize the desert-tested ingenuity of the Burning Man community and the inspiration of a greater creative culture to build scalable and sustainable solutions in one of the harshest climates in the world.

    Burning Man Reveals 2020 Temple Design: Empyrean

    Colorado architect Renzo Verbeck and artist Sylvia Adrienne Lisse have designed an eight-pointed angular structure to serve as the temple at the 2020 Burning Man Festival.

    Called Empyrean, the pavilion will form the centrepiece of the temporary Black Rock City during the annual gathering. It will be burned on the final day along with the namesake “man” and other structures built on the playa.

    Laurence “Renzo” Verbeck, the founder and principal of Verbeck Design Studio in Boulder, Colorado and project partner Lisse, an artist with experience constructing large scale art installations, were among a number of teams that vied to design the 2020 temple.

    Their winning scheme is named Empyrean, which refers to a region beyond the physical realm said to be the birthplace of fire.

    “Empyrean represents the region just beyond our physical realm that is the highest center of wisdom, and the source of energy-consciousness,” the design team said. “In ancient cosmologies, Empyrean is the realm of pure light that is believed to be the birthplace of fire.”

    It will comprise eight angular pavilions that will be arranged to form a star shape. They will be constructed using conventional framing lumber, and latticework walls. Verbeck and Lisse chose the material for its ease of construction and its combustibility.

    “The simple geometry of the star creates a sacred foundation and activates the temple as a transformative healing portal for every Burner to experience in their own way,” they said.

    The celestial cutouts are designed to allow sunlight to filter inside during the day, while at night light from its interior will radiate outwards.

    When visitors venture into the monument, they will enter through one of eight narrow apertures created by the formation of the blades and traverse into “the multiverse.”
