72 Hour Urban Action is an international real-time 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.
The first 72 Hour Urban Action will take place in Bat-Yam, Israel as part of the Bat-Yam Biennale of Landscape Urbanism.
