THE 2016 GOLDEN REBAR AWARDS
Disclaimer for the 12 readers and counting of this blog: given the ever-changing weather pattern combined to the ebb and flow of participants, it is impossible to see the entirety of shelters and dwellings, visit all the camps and villages that dot the city. I spared no effort to bike and walk all the streets back and forth from 2:00 to 10:00, A to L, for two weeks documenting this urban phenomenon.
If you have any precision to add, calmly contact me: brc(at)philippeglade.com
The Soundscape Golden Rebar
In 2016, indisputably, The Mayan Warrior mutant vehicle could not be missed thanks to a lasers display that rivals any stadium bands, a beyond believes 70,000 watt sound system to dance to talented and daring DJ's like Jennifer Cardini among an impressive list of artists.
Its sound signature brings the promises of tension and rhythm.
The Man's burn set was just phenomenal.

Variation on a classic DPW shade structure.
White poles and beams with a white ground cover to minimise the dust stamping make a very inviting place. The white fabric for ceiling did not abate heat as expected.
