Diploma Studio 10 at Westminster University School of Architecture
WeWantToLearn.net wins Burning Man Art Grant for the second year
Toby Burgess and I are very happy to announce that HAYAM – Temple to Sunlight, designed by Josh Haywood of Diploma Studio 10, University of Westminster, has won the Burning Man Art Grant. Similarly to last year’s amazing experience building Shipwreck and Fractal Cult, we will develop the project with the help of engineers at Ramboll Computational Design and will travel to Burning Man in August to realize the project. Josh Haywood has just sent the great pictures below of the latest prototypes in which we are lashing the plywood pieces together.
Toby and I explain the reason behind these projects in the TedX video below, The Architecture of Joy:
As the grant is limited, we need your help to pay for transportation and the additional costs related to construction, you can donate on the PayPal button below:
