WeWantToLearn.net(Diploma Studio 10 at the University of Westminster led by Toby Burgess and Arthur Mamou-Mani) is happy to announce more good news – Three of our students have just received art grants from the Burning Man Festival to build the pavilions they designed as part of our brief – Congratulations to the following winners:
All DS10 students will be offered a chance to build the projects this summer with the designers and we will be supported by RAMBOLL and Format Engineers.
Over the course of four years, DS10 has submitted a little more than 80 proposals to the Global Arts Grant of Burning Man and received a total of 6 grants including the ones for Fractal Cult & Shipwreck (built in 2013) and Hayam (built in 2014). We are all very proud and excited to go back!

Your program sounds amazing. I love the approach to learning! I will be attending burning man 2015, are there any opportunities to help with your projects?
Thanks a lot for your kind message. We might need help 🙂 Do you live near Reno?
That depends on your definition of close. I live right outside Salt Lake City, Utah. So, about 10 hours away. I’d love to head out early, stay late, or anything else the team might need.
