Burning Man Airport Competiton

A competition to design a new airport terminal for the Burning Man festival was held in February, 2013.

My Real Life and Second Life collaborator Kaytie Sirnah and I submitted a design, and we placed 2nd out of 45 entries. Our entry was designed, modeled and photographed entirely in Second Life.

The competition was to design a new airport terminal and pilot’s lounge to be used at Burning Man, a yearly festival of art and community that takes place in a remote desert location in Nevada. For one week, over 50,000 people come together in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada to create a temporary city – Black Rock City – dedicated to art and community.  While the majority of the 50,000 plus participants arrive by car, a goodly number also arrive by private plane – hence the airport.

The requirements for the structure were daunting. To read the entry requirements, go here.
