Urban Campsite project unites art and camping in Amsterdam

Camping does not sound like an artsy adventure, but not for Dutch Anette van Driel and Francis Nijenhuis. The economist-designer duo initiated the Urban Campsite project in 2014, and after the tremendous success of the first edition, the summer-long event is back to Amsterdam. On the Centrumeiland of IJburg an urban campsite was built up, featuring 14 striking and often surreal art tents, that are artistic installations and accommodations packed in one. The participating artists and designers were given free hand to create their own little housing solution, with the sole restriction that it should exhibit “purport and change of meaning”.

Which, for that matter, is not a difficult task at all, regarding the already given juxtaposition of art and accommodation, which gives practical function to an otherwise static art-piece. The concept, which is already implying that on this campsite nothing is at it seems, leads to spectacular solutions. From more traditional tent-like shapes to futurist structures, most of the projects rely on residual materials, making the useless useful.

The peculiarity of the project is just further emphasized by the location: the Centrumeiland of IJburg is a desert-like space that has been standing empty since an urban development project was dropped ages ago. Now the Urban Campsite project brings life back to the sandy shore-like site, which looks rather out-of-this-world with the random drop of bizarre little tents. Locals and tourists are all invited to take a closer look at Urban Campsite, or the more adventurous can book a night or two until the end of August.
