Admission open for 72 Hour Urban Action

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. 72 Hour Urban Action will be the kick-off of a series of major urban interventions around Stuttgart 21, site of the largest urban redevelopment in Europe and the centre of a heated 30-year-old public debate.

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 realise projects in response to the spatial and social challenges the sites and missions offer.

All participants will live together on site in an old disused locomotive repair hangar converted into a sleep-work camp, thus enriching the neighbourhood 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 takeoff day. An international panel of jury will include prominent leaders, architects and curators. The winning team will receive a prize of $4,000. Applications are received until the end of May with takeoff scheduled for 11 July 2012. Click here for more information.
