Do It

Design and Build in 72 Hours

72 Hour Urban Action - the world's first real-time architecture competition - gives selected teams only three days & three nights to design and build interventions in public space in response to local needs.

The international teams will include residents, architects, designers, artists, craftspeople, students and generally nice people. Teams will come to Derry~Londonderry 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 a local school converted into a sleep-work camp, enriching the neighborhood with a multi-cultural and intense experience.

Participating teams will receive a budget for materials, a central prefabrication camp, and a team of 'Angels' (construction and safety engineers).

The missions and sites will be assigned randomly on take off day. An international panel of jury will include prominent leaders, architects and curators.
