We have been on a bit of a summer break here at Futures+, but now we are back and coming at you with this hot Kickstarter out of the DS10 Studio at Westminster University School of Architecture.  Georgia Collard-Watson and Thanasis Korras projects were both selected to be built at the 2013 Burning Man festival in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert.  DS10 is now crowd sourcing on Kickstarter in order to bring these projects to life!  Futures+ had showcased both Shipwreck and Fractal Cult throughout the studio year, as we are constantly checking out WeWantToLearn.net. F+ would like to do our part and support these students as they have almost reached their halfway point.  Check it out after the jump and support their kickstarter!
