Vertical Urban Camping Offers Unique Vacation Experience

Antwerp-based firm Import Export Architecture. Their multi-tiered mobile urban camping unit is designed to be implanted right into the heart of any city center for a truly unique camping experience. Import Export Architecture says that they see their pop-up, prefab accommodations as a place “where adventurous city wanderers can stay overnight, meet other campers and find a safe shelter with basic designed practical facilities.”

“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.
The “floors” themselves are round and are surrounded by chainlink fence, protecting campers from falling over the edges.
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.
