How do you handle temporary places?

I'm asking because a scene of my current campaign happens in a war camp. Obviously that isn't a permanent place. It's only there for the timespan of the siege of a certain city.

Now usually I structury my places hierarchically - like continent>nation>province>city>location and such. Now I'm kinda torn: do I put the warcamp under the city its besieging, under the scene in the storyline, under the attacking nation or even under the attacking nation's army topic?

How do you handle such things?

maybe after location add a temporary category so it would look like

>city>location>temporary
or
>city>location>temporary_location

Since even war camps leave traces after their abandonment, I would change it to a ruined place, a landmark or something the like at the end of the siege.

Personally I'd make it different scenes attached to the location. Assuming you want the PC's to see the place before or after the camp is there then that would seem to make the most sense.
