The Tiny House Blog has a great collection of photographs from this years Burning Man that focuses on the small homes and other shelters built by the people who make the trek out to the desert event. Burning Man offers a unique and challenging design problem in that it gets very hot during the day and very cold at night. Strong winds can quickly pickup and darken the sky with blasting dust storms. Shelters need to be strong enough to stand up in the winds, reflect away the sun's rays during the day while retaining the ability to hold heat at night. And if it wants to fit in at Burning Man it better look amazing/fantastic/crazy/all of the above.
