Westminster students start work on pop-ups for Burning Man festival

  • Comment

Temporary pavilions designed by University of Westminster architecture students are being erected in the western US state of Nevada for this year’s Burning Man arts festival.

Designs by Tobias Power, Lorna Jackson and Jon Leung will feature in next month’s event in the Black Rock Desert, which carries the theme Carnival of Mirrors.

The three are Part 2 students and members of a group led by tutors Toby Burgess and Arthur Mamou-Mani that focuses on algorithm-based design.

Burgess told The AJ he was currently in Nevada working on the installations.

The trio’s work will be joined by a pavilion created by former University of Westminster student Josh Haywood, who also created a work for last year’s festival.

Burning Man 2015 takes place from August 30 to September 7.
