The world’s 1st real-time architecture competition will be the kick-off of a series of major urban interventions. All around the site of the largest urban redevelopment in Europe – Stuttgart 21 – the center of a 30 year heated 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 envision and realize projects in response to the spatial and social challenges the sites and missions offer.The international teams will include residents, architects, designers, artists, craftspeople, students and generally nice people. Teams will come to Stuttgart armed with a passion for action, and ready to give their time and expertise to help with community needs.All participants will live together on site, in an old disused locomotive repair hangar converted into a sleep-work camp, thus enriching the neighborhood with a multi-cultural 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 take off day. International panel of jury will include prominent leaders, architects and curators. The winning team will receive a prize of $ 4000.The first 72 Hour Urban Action competition took place in September 2010 as part of the Bat-Yam Biennale of Landscape Urbanism. The Bat-Yam Biennale is a unique civic action model that encourages bottom-up change in public space in collaboration with the local authorities.72 HUA International TeamKerem Halbrecht | Founder and Co-DirectorGilly Karjevsky | Co-Director72 HUA Stuttgart TeamLukasz Lendzinski | Project LeaderPeter Weigand | Architect Markus Niessner | FinanceDavid Baur | CommunityJosephine Pflüger | CoordinatorCarla Schwarz | ResearchPromo CreditsOmri Anghel as David Townsend | Editing, Videography, Music, SoundAnn Streichman as Stephanie BauschnellKerem Halbrecht | DirectorStuttgart Video TeamAndrea RoggonSarah BeekmannHarry Delgado
