architecture and interior design firm red deer has designed and hand-built a temporary pavilion for community ‘F camp’ at burning man 2019. led by the studio’s co-founder lucas che tizard, the pavilion provides a communal space for burning man participants to gather, share and celebrate each other’s constructive ideas.

by day, the structure designed by red deer provides shade with an opening at the top exposing the nevada desert sky. by night, the aperture provides ventilation for a central fire. the pavilion, intentionally elevated off the ground, is designed to feel vast from a distance, and intimate when inside. wrapped in an awning, the structure is supported by a total of 12 wooden beams erected towards the octagonal exposed top.

‘bringing the outside in, the interior of the pavilion was focused around a desert sun inspired colour palette with blush and sandy hues creating a natural transition inside.’ explains the red deer design team. carefully curated for maximum comfort, the interior is surfaced with moroccan style rugs and colorful mandala bean bags. other decorations, such as macrame pendants and hand painted art, can be found hanging from the wooden beams. in the middle of the pavilion lies a grand piano facing a DJ deck, which played a mix of music all day and night.

the theme for burning man 2019 has focused on ‘metamophoses’ and sustainability.the installation will be re-used at a forthcoming festival on the west coast and we are encouraging the pavilion to be utilized where possible before returning to burning man next year,’ comments tizard. ‘we don’t see the pavilion as being finished. it will evolve and grow. one idea is to make a series of extensions and add a communal hammock in the upper opening.’

the ‘F camp’ pavilion is the second installation designed by red deer for burning man. in 2015, the studio designed a six meter high clear plexiglass pyramid called ‘lûz’ in conjunction with structure mode and weber industries.
