Get ready to be the King of Burning Man

Do you have a lot of land?

Do you like your luxury to be low-impact?

Would you like to utterly dominate Burning Man?

If you answered yes to any of the above, and you appreciate beautiful design, then check out the Autonomous Tent, a temporary shelter that needs no grid and looks museum quality, too.

Created in Denver, the Autonomous Tent features a cone-shaped shell made out of a translucent fabric that’s remeniscent of the main concourse of the Denver Airport. Inside, however, has a skeleton of wood, laminated and punctuated by steel and aluminum.

There’s no need for a foundation as it’s set on a deck, but you can add grey water for showers and sinks. There are also add-ons for solar and composting, with LED lights on the inside.

The structure is offered in two sizes — 700 square feet and 1,000 square feet — and can sustain heavy snow and 90mph winds.

Don’t worry. Your apartment will still be there when you get back. If you get back.
