Playa Ruins, by Quentin Davis - see www.­quentini.­com

Playa ruins is vernacular architecture for tiny ancient people.­ Made from the materials at hand, playa and water, these tiny people built a grand edifice which has withstood this harsh desert for eons.­ Standing five feet tall, it was a Herculean task for these tiny people who stood no more than 3" tall.­

Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.­

The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert.­ A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.­

The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man).­ The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.­
