The top design proposals for Burning Man‘s permanent art and event space were released on Wednesday.

Multidisciplinary creatives from around the world were invited to design mockups as part of the LAGI 2020 Fly Ranch design challenge. The competition was a collaboration between the Burning Man Project and the Land Art Generator Initiative to create the foundational infrastructure at a Nevada nature site that hosts Burning Man Project events.

Designers were tasked with integrating sustainable systems for food, energy, water and shelter into their artistic designs. Nearly 200 teams submitted proposals, and 10 were chosen by a panel of local indigenous community communities and experts in the fields of art, science, architecture, landscape design, conservation and engineering.

The top ranking teams have been invited to test their on-site installation and functional prototypes.

The Burning Man event is held annually in Black Rock City, Nevada, and draws tens of thousands of people each year. In 2016, the organization behind Black Rock City purchased the 3,800 acre Fly Ranch property just north of the event site as an opportunity “to create a year-round rural incubator for Burning Man culture and a catalyst for innovation and creativity in the world.”

Last year, the Burning Man festival was cancelled to due to the coronavirus pandemic.
