Camping [2] 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 [3] 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 [4], 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 [5] project last year and we’re hoping that they’ll come to a city near us soon!
