Black Rock City is laid out in a two-thirds circle, somewhat similar to a giant horseshoe
about 1.5 miles wide (circa 2.5 km).
In the center of this arrangement is the Burning Man statue, surrounded by a huge empty
space called the "Playa". The Playa can be used for large-scale art installations or
large structures that will be burned at the end of the festival.
At the far horizon of the Playa you can see the Temple of Joy.
