72 Hour Urban Action, the world's first real-time architecture
competition gives selected teams only three days & three nights to
design and build interventions in public space in response to local
needs.

The competition is defined by an extreme deadline, a tight budget and
limited space and will challenge participants to rapidly leave a
lasting impact on the city's urban fabric. They will be battling the
clock, the restrictive conditions and each other to dream and realize
projects in response to the spatial and social challenges the sites
and missions offer.

The international teams will include residents, architects, designers,
artists, craftspeople, students and generally nice people. Teams will
come to Stuttgart armed with a passion for action, and ready to give
their time and expertise to help with community needs.

All participants will live together on site, in an old disused
locomotive repair hangar converted into a sleep-work camp, thus
enriching the neighborhood with a multi-cultural and intense experience.

Participating teams will receive a budget for materials, a central
prefabrication camp, a team of 'Angels' (construction and safety
engineers) and a truck (!).

The missions and sites will be assigned randomly on take off day. An
international panel of jury will include prominent leaders, architects
and curators. The winning team will receive a prize of $4000.

The first 72 Hour Urban Action competition took place in September
2010 as part of the Bat-Yam Biennale of Landscape Urbanism. The Bat-
Yam Biennale is a unique civic action model that encourages bottom-up
change in public space in collaboration with the local authorities.

The first event drew 100 participants from 20 nationalities and
received major press coverage from the New York Times, Domus Magazine,
Metropolis Magazine, Pruned, Abitare, Architizer, Dexinger,
Designboom, ArchDaily, Worldchanging and many more.


WE INVITE ARCHITECTS, DESIGNERS, ARTISTS, CRAFTSPEOPLE

AND GENERALLY NICE PEOPLE TO APPLY

FOR THEIR CHANCE TO TAKE PART IN THE ACTION!
