LBRC Needs You!
Our Mission: LondonBRC’s (LBRC) goal is to bring some of the iconic structures of London (House of Commons/Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge and Tower of London) to the Playa of Black Rock City as a fully functioning interactive art installation for Burning Man 2013. With the hope of incorporating the integral elements of these landmarks into the landscape of community, culture and core principles that is The Burning Man Project.
The entire project, detailed below, is slated to be planned in tiers, based on resources and funding, with each structure built as a phase designed to carry itself individually and work together as a whole.
Current Project: Tier 1. Phases 1 – 1B. One of the most exciting aspects of these structures and our first full phase of the project will be a fully functioning, free standing House of Commons, to be used for both planned and open discussions & forums by all, to discuss any relevant topics, ranging from world matters to topics within Burning Man itself. The walls of the House of Commons will be lined with interactive artwork from our volunteers and artists around the world with the exterior of the structure used as a projection canvas at night (Sample pic here!). Tier 1B incorporates our vision of Elizabeth Tower attached to the House of Commons, a vision where the tower's clock faces will also interact with other projects on the Playa.
Future Possible Tiers:
Tier 2. Houses of Parliament. Designed as a 4-story structure, incorporating the remaining elements of our Houses of Parliament, with Ye Olde Ale House , a working indoor Theatre/Cinema, art rooms and corridors lined with portraits of famous Royals & characters from British history, all donated by artists from around the world.
Tier 3. Tower Bridge will connect both The Houses of Parliament and Tower of London on the 1st floor. The bridge itself will also showcase performance art incorporating a number of different artists and groups on the Playa.
Tier 4. Tower of London will be home to a dungeon, theatrical style brothel, a history room telling tales of the Tower of London and other historical facts and photos. The Tower will also be designed with a flat roof to be used a large viewing platform.
