“Camping is defined as getting away from an urban area, and enjoying nature, spending one or two nights in a location. As such, the phrase urban camping contradicts itself. Urban camping informally and unexpectedly revealed itself in examples such as parents camping out in front of a school to enroll their kids of Harry Potter Fans camping in front of a store to buy the newest release,” writes IEA of their inspiration for the project.
According to IEA, renewed interest in traveling has led to a rising demand for low-budget accommodations – which really makes sense when you consider the more frugal times we’re living in. The vertical campsites were installed in Copenhagen, Denmark as part of the Outcities project last year and we’re hoping that they’ll come to a city near us soon!
