Burning Man Experience and Urbanism

Today an article published by Steve Pepple popped up in my e-mail account. Topic: What could someone learn from a Burning Man Experience in Nevada?
Every year a desert city gives home to more than 68.000 people for one week. During the festival the desert becomes a melting pot under extreme environmental conditions and provides plenty of space to alternative mobilities and more generally; an alternative way of live; for thousands.

The author is not the first one who tried to understand and learn from this temporary urban experiment, but raises some very interesting points in relation to city experiences and urban development. Most interestingly the arguments made by Steve Pepple turn obvious immediatly while reading his article – even though I never had a chance to attend the desert spectacle. Click here for the complete article. It’s worth reading…!
