STAY IN THE BADLANDS - Erica Hansen - MLA 2
Stay in the Badlands is an alternative campground, situated amongst the alluring hills of Midland Provincial Park, right outside of downtown Drumheller. It challenges traditional ideas of camping and begs the question: When does landscape become architecture? With a series of domes meant to resemble the natural topography of the region, constructed with a mixture of ancient and modern building techniques, the camp grounds goals are to bring together diverse groups of people, keep visitors in the area longer creating economic opportunities for Drumheller, and add to the diversity of accommodation options in the region. From the dinosaur museum to the Star-Trek museum, Drumheller has always been a
site of paradoxes. Playing with the ideas
of the prehistoric age and the space age, this campground is designed to spark both conversation and contemplation.
