Black Rock City Map Archive

Often referenced as a “beautifully zoned tentopolis, designed with a precision of which the Renaissance city-state idealists or Haussmann would approve” (London Observer), Urban Planners come to our city each year to study it as a Petri dish of human culture. The observed interactions between our citizens and our ever-evolving design are applied in planning new communities around the world.

Although Black Rock City exists for only a moment in time each year, we know from “changed my life” statements that Burning Man is much more than a fleeting experience. Our city is more than its parts; it is an analog to a microcosm of life.
