Playa Dust: Collected Stories from Burning Man is a compilation of essays by authors who are part of the universe of Burning Man or who engage the many ideas and landscapes on its periphery. By juxtaposing an unusual array of voices and stories, it reveals the complex nature and range of this annual pilgrimage to the Black Rock Desert.

Architecture has a unique responsibility to anticipate and shape the future. Buildings and spaces designed today will not be completed for years, then are expected to remain relevant for decades or indefinitely. For this reason, design must always look forward to anticipate what changes in society and technology may bring and conversely what elements remain timeless. This studio sought to investigate one facet of the future that has already gone through many rounds of radical change, human work and the space that supports it.
