There's a hands-on art
installation in Centrumeiland, Amsterdam—Urban Campsite Amsterdam—looking
to give beach-goers even more of a chance to fall asleep to the sound of waves
past their impromptu afternoon naps.  Fourteen architects, designers, and
artists created ocean-side dwellings that serve as an art installation by
day and rental pods for campers by night. The designers were all given
the same assignment: Each pod had to be made with materials that had
alternate uses aside from their intended purpose. The result is a micro
neighborhood of quirky yurts each depicting the personality of the designer.
People around the world have already flocked to the campsite, which is much
more than a handful of shelters. The space features a community herb garden,
a local supermarket, a functioning kitchen, a learning spare for DIY
workshops, and—the site's central gathering area—a firepit. The pods will
be open for viewing (and renting) until August 31st. For more information on
how to rent your own beachside designer pod, head over to Airbnb. Erika
