One’s singularity is stimulated through his unique expressions. Burning Man is a city symbolizing all sorts of disconnection and de-materialization through a physical and atemporal space. Fractal geometry fragments the pentagonal plan, rendering it a complete detachment of what a city could look like whilst always obeying to a radical grid for easy accessing.

The fractal system eats from the outer and the inner boundary of the pentagon, thus creating different spaces where one or groups could manage to ephemerally inhabit. The final shape obtained will be traced through vertical columns, serving as structural pillars for potential installations and tents. The forest of columns disappears in the haze of the desert, while offering an additional spatial dimension. Some of the pillars will bend, allowing dancers, fixed installations or even tents to swing through the festival.

At a later stage, these structural elements could receive special plugins of lighting fixtures or other utilities.
