Black Rock City, NV: The New Ephemeral Architecture of Burning Man
5 years in the making, Black Rock City, NV The New Ephemeral Architecture of Burning Man is the sequel of a sold-out and sought-after volume 1 dedicated to the ephemeral architecture of Burning Man published by Real Paper Books in 2011.
Instead of reprinting it, we decided to move on and present an entirely new survey made of 200 new images from 2011 to 2015 where vernacular and perennial solutions coexist along experimental and rule-breaking designs, with foreword by Zahid Sardar and essays by Burning Man co-founder Harley K. Dubois, Fred Bernstein architecture critic and AIASF architect Glenn Lym.
Under the guidance of photographer Philippe Glade, documenting the city for the last 20 years, the book explores the streets, camps and villages shaping a unique community in the American desert. Connoisseurs or novices will be surprised by the diversity and jubilance of a phenomenon that rejuvenates, in style or not, camping in the 21st century.
