Burning Man 2016: Art and architecture under the sun, day five

Another day, another peek at Black Rock City’s budding metropolis in the desert

The SPF 50 is strong with this one, folks, as we enter day five of Burning Man 2016 in the Nevada desert.

Today we check out some new structures and art pieces that have seemingly appeared overnight. Ships, pop-art cars, illuminated skateboards, and more. And be sure to check out the titular man itself. All of this is quite the sight to behold, even for those of us who eschew crowds in the sticky sun and sand.

For a quick glance at the festival’s artwork, check out the gorgeous desert cityscape on day two , day three, and day four. And for a complete look back at the festival, check out all of Curbed SF’s pieces on Black Rock City.

And if you’re not fortunate enough to attend Burning Man 2016, you can always catch it live right from the comfort of your office or home. Ahhh.

Amazing art out on the playa! #blackrockcity #BRC #Burningman
