The Royal Institute of Dutch Architects and Lowlands present: the ArchiTent Challenge. We challenge you to design the coolest tent for the most fun campers of the Netherlands: the Lowlands crowd. Is your tent concept a showstopper in form, function and spaciousness? Then send us your design now and if you create the winning ArchiTent, you will see it at Lowlands this August. A great chance to put yourself in the spotlight! If you create the winning design, you also win 2 tickets for the entire Lowlands festival weekend and a workshop from tent builder Karsten. Also the winner will get the stage during Architecture Now @Pakhuis de Zijger on June 11.
A tent is such a thankful medium to work with because people from all over the world know what it is. A tent has always been our mutual house. The texture appeals to me as well. You can easily build volume with it and the light shines through beautifully. Tents are primarily meeting places.
