Ripple Project


Create the first self-reliant Ripple Base at Fly Ranch as a tool for building a responsive community to regenerate the cultural and ecological resilience of the Great Basin Region.




Nevada, USA

Sustainable Development Goals


A station for the regeneration of native biodiversity and ecological knowledge, Ripple is an engaging educational space for community gatherings, workshops, and projects.

Prototyping will commence in summer 2022 for the permanent installation of Ripple at Fly Ranch, a bountiful 3,800-acre plot of land in Nevada owned by Burning Man Project.

In 2020, Ripple was a winning entry to an international design competition hosted by the Land Art Generator Initiative, which sought to promote new designs for building sustainable infrastructure at Fly Ranch. The community liked our direction and have given us land to build a full-scale prototype. Building this first Ripple Base will help develop a pattern that can be replicated in any biome.

We are contributing to a volunteer-driven movement that supports the de-commodification values of Burning Man. We are not corporate-driven and and are seeking support as we all work together to manifest Ripple.

You can support Ripple in many ways. Your donation of any amount of money, material, or service will make a positive impact immediately.
