Glamping the new Camping?
A/P Fung John Chye.
Glamping a portmanteau of glamorous and camping, is described as camping with amenities where there may be resort style services not usually associated with traditional camping.
Glamping has slowly become an ideal type of getaway especially for Singaporeans who wants to camp out and relax. It has become a trend for Singaporeans to go glamping over long weekends on Indonesian islands such as Bintan or Bali. This project aims to look into architectural design possibilities for a glamping in Singapore whilst engaging with the surrounding natural environment.
The architecture's form is adopted from observing how nature and the environment comes together through its porosity and curvature, The triangular overlapping form pays homage to how leaves overlap on top of each other as it allows natural lighting to pass through. Taking inspiration from Japanese Zen influences, the design intends to create a comfortable and relaxing spaces in the woods.
