The Land Art Generator Initiative and Burning Man Project have partnered to launch a multi-disciplinary design challenge—LAGI 2020 Fly Ranch—that will create the foundational infrastructure of Fly Ranch.

You are invited to propose your regenerative artwork in this unique and stunning landscape. The design guidelines will be available in January 2020.

In 2021 selected design teams will be provided an honoraria grant for the purpose of building a functional prototype on site.

POWER

Solar, Wind, Biomass, Geothermal, Storage

With 250+ sunny days a year, regular winds that can exceed 40mph and dozens of hot springs, Fly Ranch has vast potential for developing creative solutions for renewable power from solar, geothermal, wind, and more.

WATER

Hot Springs, Filtration, Evaporation, Ice

With dozens of hot and cold springs, hundreds of pools, and half a dozen artesian wells, water is the lifeblood of Fly Ranch. We invite creative solutions for spring water filtration, sustainably generated ice and the purification and reuse of greywater. To prevent erosion, scalable designs for use of the hot springs are needed.

SHELTER

Housing, Event Spaces, Sustainable Architecture

This expansive and harsh desert climate provides opportunities to combine modern architectural and technological innovation with traditional off-grid building techniques like natural materials and passive heating/cooling for housing, camping, and gathering spaces to fit a wide range of needs from small overnight shelters to large-scale next generation fabrication centers for artists and makers.

FOOD

Permaculture, Aquaponics, Gardens, Grazing

Fly Ranch has several hundred acres of previous ranch land that can be reinvigorated to create sustainable agriculture systems for on-site events, local communities, and beyond. The site can become a laboratory for pioneering methods of desert permaculture systems and large-scale indoor desert hydroponics and aquaponics.

REGENERATION

Composting, Recycling, Biogas, Incineration

As part of the transition from temporary events to a year-round site, we have new opportunities to explore sustainable methods for composting and recycling. We can also explore new methods for rewilding pastureland, restoring landfills, and generating energy through safe incineration.
