GERLACH, Nev. — How many city planners get to see their ideas take shape all around them?
Mr. Garrett died last week at 74, just short of the 25th anniversary of Burning Man’s founding.
The short list includes Georges-Eugène Haussmann, who bulldozed much of Paris in the mid-19th century, and Robert Moses, who remade New York during the 20th.
And Rod Garrett, who, beginning in 1997, laid out Burning Man, the annual festival of self-expression in the parched northern Nevada desert.
