Camp Inside Mobile Works of Art

Camp Inside Mobile Works of Art

Campers stay in artistic and unusual mobile objects at the Urban Campsite in Amsterdam.

Daniela Walker

Of the many hazards that come with camping, one of the most treacherous is putting up the tent. Even the easy setup ones are never as easy as the instructions make out. Urban Campsite in Amsterdam does away with tents, letting campers stay in provided mobile spaces – but these are not ordinary tents, but works of art commissioned by the collective. The project brings together art and camping and a new experience to sleeping outdoors.

There are a range of available accommodations from the Boomhuttenfest tree house, where sleepers stay high in the trees in hanging 3D polyhedrons, to Kevin van Braak’s Caravan, which looks like a normal camper but folds out into an artificial garden replete with silk flowers, stuffed animals, a sound system emitting bird sounds.

Not only a space to camp, Urban Campsite is providing an entire atmosphere of community for campers with open-air movies, dinners at long tables, outdoor theater and temporary photo exhibitions. It will be setting up camp from August 11 to September 30 at Viegenbos camping ground. To see some of the weirdly wonderful mobile camping options, click below:
