LondonBRC ProjectBy: LondonBRC Reno, NV
LondonBRC Project’s goal is to bring the iconic structures of London’s Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge and Tower of London to the Playa ofBlack 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 crew behind the project, The En!gma Crew, is lead by the project’s lead artist, Alan McCann (aka “Doof”), with the rest of the En!gma crew behind the build comprised of individuals from varied backgrounds and skill sets, ranging from our home bases in Reno and Houston, all the way to New York, Toronto, British Columbia and overseas in both the UK and China.
The project, detailed below, is slated to be planned in phases, based on resources and funding, with each structure (i.e. phase) designed to carry itself individually and together as a whole.
Phase 1. The Houses of Parliament is designed to be planned as a 4 story structure, with Ye Olde Ale House (no alcohol to be served), a working indoor Theatre/Cinema, art rooms and corridors lined with portraits of famous Royals and characters from British history, all donated by artists from around the world. The most exciting aspect of this structure will be a fully functioning House of Commons, to be used for both planned and open discussion forums by the public to discuss relevant topics from world matters to Burning man itself.
Phase 2. Tower Bridge will connect both The Houses of Parliament and Tower of London on the 1st floor, with a working bridge built to lift allowing art car passage under the bridge at certain times of day. The bridge itself will also showcase performance art incorporating a number of different artists and groups on the Playa.
Phase 3. The 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 as a large viewing platform for all.
We believe our team has designed and planned a unique and multifaceted space for this project, with the hope of providing an interactive art installation for attendees to experience and explore throughout the duration of the festival for Burning Man 2013.

To our wonderful donors!
Happy New Year!
We just wanted to touch base with you all to let you know how much we appreciated your donation and to not fret as even though we did not make our teaser target over the holiday season, a large portion of our 81% percent reached was in a check so we were able to make a deposit into our account regardless!
We wanted to follow up with you to let you know that we will still be honoring the donor incentive level rewards you pledged on the please fund us page and invite you to re-pledge your amount on our We Pay page in the interim, or wait till our Indiegogo page goes up in February and collect 2 donor level rewards!
Thank you so much and we SO appreciate your continued support!
