With each passing year, Burning Man architecture is becoming increasingly complex and elaborate, and this year's playa will be serving up quite the visual feast. Three designers from WeWantToLearn in Westminster have received funding to install three radical temporary pavilions. Intrigued by parametric design, digital fabrication, self-building and self-reliance, Tobias Power, Jon Leung and Lorna Jackson have outdone themselves with three excellent designs that are as much about symbolism as they are about leading-edge design. Hit the jump to learn more about Infinity Tree, Bismuth Bivouac and Reflection, each a unique interpretation of this year's theme "Carnival of Mirrors."
Infinity Tree mimics the helical shape found in nature.
A diamond pattern activates the surface.
Bismuth Bivouac is inspired by the geometric surfaces of bismuth crystals.
A web of geometries converge around a central space to create shelter.
At night, multicolored LED lights give the pavilion a whole new ambience.
Reflection mimics a traditional carnival of mirrors with a series of Spiralhedrons.
Festival goers are invited to share their innermost secrets and create new bonds in this semi-private space.
