About the Project:

InVasive is a design/build project that will culminate in a temple structure situated on the west side of the Cincinnati Art Museum. This temple will be completed to coincide with the opening of the museum exhibition No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man in May 2019. The structure will echo the meaning and function of the temple built for Burning Man in the Nevada desert each year – it will be a place of refuge, reflection, remembrance – but it will be designed to reflect the context of its Cincinnati location.
