In 2022 the Club House is the central meeting space for Disorient campers and their guests; a playful loungy atmosphere with many shaded seating options, downtempo music and a stage for Disorient Talks, Camp Meetings, dining and other get-togethers. A chill area during the day and a warm meeting place for pre/post playa adventures at night.

Design and Planning

CH22 is a pallet-rack-based pentarchitecture dripping with pornj fabric that flows in the wind. It conjures the post-post vibe of a Pornj day-after, whimsical, sexy and decadent. It gets more accomplished and develops an aura as the week evolves and playa patina settles in.

Light levels of CH19 were right on. CH22 shouldn't be too bright at night. A few vertical spotlights on the outside of the pentagon and some punctual smaller lights inside including lots of LED tea lights turn it into the perfect endroit to chill pre/post playa adventures. A soothing space for our campers and their guests.

At D19, our camp at Burning Man 2019, we debuted the Club House, our new shaded pentagon-shaped multi-story pallet rack frontage structure complete with Pornj velvet couches and GlamTech decor.

By day, the Club House served as a performance space for our Dry Lakebed Synchronized Swimming Team and shaded haven for AMP’D yogis, who were treated to Frozen Minty Towels after their invigorating practice.

On Tuesday, DISORIENT hosted the Cultural Collaborators Cocktail Party in the Club House, a celebration of those who help spread Burning Man culture around the world. DISORIENT was the first Theme Camp ever to host this special event, which is a reflection of the extraordinary contributions our collective makes in Black Rock City and beyond.

At night, the Club House transformed into an illuminated beacon, featuring glimmering LEDs on the DISORIENT sign and Helios bars, incandescent Pornj lighting, and a sky-high laser programmed to spell out D-I-S-O-R-I-E-N-T in Morse code. DISORIENT music played all week long through a pristine sound system, with the Wayward Teahouse offering a peaceful respite from the revelry during three late-night parties.
