Camposaz 6:6 Rotterdam
Camposaz 6:6 is a workshop that takes place in the Quarantine island, in the harbor area of Rotterdam. The aim of the workshop is to design and self-build wooden architectural objects for landscape enhancement. During the Camposaz workshop the participants are required to ideate and assemble wood constructions, following the thematic suggestions provided by the organizers and developing eco-friendly, practical and sustainable design projects.
People need individual, idyllic places outside of our busy world. Over-information, social media and high work pressure frustrate people in their search for personal balance. Therefore we practice yoga and meditation, we train in mindfulness and build tiny houses in our backyards. It becomes more and more clear; we are full, we need quiet spaces and places to regain our energy and find balance in our busy existence. On the unique and green Quarantine terrain, in the harbor area of Rotterdam, this necessity has been represented by an exhibition called ‘Quarantine, contemporary hermitages’. For 3 months, 24 pavilions, made by artists and architects, were exhibited on the terrain. Camposaz was part of the exhibition and created an international team the hermitage called ‘Nina’s Treehouse’ in just 10 days. The pavilion serves as a place for contemplation. The concept of Nina’s Treehouse focuses on a multiple experience of the paradisiacal green environment. The hermitage is surrounded by an earthy bamboo forest, multiple grand trees and the Maas river.
