3/ The Golden Rebars Awards 1/ Metal Pods Village





Golden Rebar Grand Prize




Metal Pods Village by Scott Parenteau

When last year Scott "Tin Man" Parenteau came for the first time to Burning Man, he became an instant celebrity on the playa with his walking pod that since brought him several awards at Maker Faire, and with his two patented metal pods used for shelter was a big draw for his neighbors.

For his second time at Black Rock City, Scott upped the ante and decided to build a village for his friends. He was able to finish his own shelter by adding the third pod, the bedroom on top of a fully operational stainless steel custom made shower and a complete kitchen.

I really thought they were a cool structure and was happy to have a chance to explore them!
