The Roeblingagon is the NYC CORE Project for Burning Man 2012.

The Roeblingagon, a  dome-like installation inspired by the Brooklyn Bridge, is the New York City C.O.R.E. (Circle of Regional Effigies) projects for Burning Man 2012, and will be one of 35 projects in the C.O.R.E. surrounding the Man!

The Roeblingagon is a 10-foot tall, 20-foot diameter structure that radiates outward from the center of a semi-sphere using the iconic components of the bridge. During the day, the installation will cast abstract shadows from the desert sun, taking full advantage of the playa's unique and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. At night, it will be lit with an array of color-changing LEDs, providing a beacon that the New York burner community can rally around. The structure also features climbable netting, making the effigy interactive!

Sharing the project with the community at this point of the design and build process is extremely important to us. We are looking for feedback, constructive criticism, advice, tips and people who want to be involved in the project in various capacities and commitment levels. Let's make this effigy one that not only represents our community, but is driven by our community as a whole!

Components of the project will also be featured at FIGMENT NYC, June 9th and 10th. Our goal is open up this project beyond the Burning Man community all of New York City. And to be able to find contributor and collaborators, who would otherwise not have access to this community based project. In addition to the top tier of the structure, we will have prints of the construction plans where participants can make their own comments and share their ideas about the projects.
