Urbanism: 72 Hour Urban Action

Great news from South-Germany: In July 2012, the world’s first real-time architecture competition 72 Hour Urban Action is coming to Stuttgart to work together with local cultural activists! All around the site of the largest urban redevelopment in Europe – Stuttgart 21 – the center of a 30 year heated public debate, 72 Hour Urban Action will be the kick-off of a series of major urban interventions in the city…

72 Hour Urban Action is the world’s first real-time architecture competition, where 10 international teams have 3 days and 3 nights to design and build projects in public space in response to local needs. It is working together with local partner, Kunstverein Wagenhallen after a major public protest around the development and re-purposing of the Stuttgart 21 area. The Post 21 program suggests a series of events in response to the local planning crisis and the ongoing public outcry that were the result of the Stuttgart 21 plan. Through it we seek alternative approaches to city planning and different tactics for engaging residents in place-making.

For more info, watch the trailer above, check out the project’s website and make sure to apply by May 26th!
