This year's Burning Man featured a festival sauna that was built in collaboration between JKMM Architects — a Helsinki-based design firm, and Finish creative collective Sauna on Fire. The experience ensured that individuals in the Nevada desert could easily "cleanse and relax" their mind, body, and spirit.
Dubbed the 'Steam of Life Pavilion,' the structure was built with dark wood and boasted a circular shape. The space was to be utilized as "a place of respite that draws on the detoxing and rituals of the typical Finish sauna." Undoubtedly welcomed in such a hot climate, the festival sauna remains an unusual choice for the aesthetic of Burning Man, but one that surely pulled weight in the comfort of the community.
