Russian architect Sasha Shtanuk has started an campaign to help bring his 10,000 square meter reflective silver NASA space blanket design to this year’s edition .

Referring to the project as ‘The Blanket at Burning Man’, the large reflective sheet consists 3,350 ultralight polyester space blankets that soak up 97 per cent all radiated heat. The Blanket will provide a massive shaded area where attendees can “relax, chill, have a nap or dance” during the day and will be “constantly changing its silhouette through the power wind”.

The project needs to raise $17,500 for materials, an excavator, equipment rental and transportation costs from Russia to Black Rock City before the end the week.
