72 Hour Urban Action is a competitive architectural festival that generates interventions in public space within an extreme deadline, a tight budget, and limited space.
120 international participants working in 10 teams have 3 days and nights to design and build their projects in the public realm.
The teams design, build, work, sleep and party on site, enriching the city with a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary experience.
The first 72 Hour Urban Action took place in September 2010 as part of the Bat-Yam Biennale of Landscape Urbanism in Israel.
It drew participants from 20 nationalities and received major press coverage from the New York Times, Metropolis Magazine, Pruned, Abitare, Architizer, Dexinger, Designboom, Arch Daily, Worldchanging and many more.
