Many people and camps at Burning Man create shade structures and common structures using some form of fabric. This is the entrance to the Alternative Energy Zone, which was built using a "special shade cloth porous enough for ventilation." According to Glade, the fabric is called Aluminet, and was originally used in the farming business because it offered different levels of shade and strength.
