72 Hour Urban Action | Open Call
72 Hour Urban Action Project is an international rapid architecture and
design festival. It is defined by community needs, an extreme deadline, a
tight budget and limited space.
We invite teams of architects, students, designers, artists and craftspeople
to respond to community needs and wants in relation to its public spaces.
Selected teams will have three days and three nights to plan and realize
their projects in response to missions assigned to them on takeoff day.
Selected projects will remain on site permanently.
A professional jury will select a team to win the first prize.
72 Hour Urban Action will take place in Bat-Yam, Israel as part of
the Bat-Yam Biennale of Landscape Urbanism.
