UrbanCampsite

Did you ever feel the urge to sleep in a piece of art? Well, then this is your chance! UrbanCampsite is the place where a camping and unique artistic objects meet. You can stay in beautiful, special, sometimes crazy works of art furnished as a hotel room. The UrbanCampsite offers its guests all the amenities of a normal campsite ... and quite a lot more than that!

Camp the night

We're a proud partner of the event Camp The Night Amsterdam. On the 12th of August you can book a night in one of our art objects, including dinner, live music and breakfast! For more information and bookings click here (website) / go to www.campthenight.com 

 

 

Exhibition

This year's exhibition theme is "The Art of Tech-Living", the art of future life and living. Science and art are closely related. Science tries to understand the world and develops technology to change it. Art shows a world that doesn't yet exist. Science needs imagination. Without Jules Verne there wouldn't have been an effort to fly to Mars and build an extraterrestrial camp site.

Where?

In its third edition UrbanCampsite has descended in the unknown but extraordinary Science Park, a new area in Amsterdam-East where science, science research, ICT and biology are housed, this summer enriched with an exhibition and a futuristic mini-society.
