by Jaime Gross The other week I attended a gathering at REBAR in San Francisco, in honor of Israeli architects Kerem Halbrecht and Gilly Karjevsky's cool project, 72 Hour Urban Action. Held last September and billed as "the world's first real-time architecture competition," the 72 Hour Urban Action contest brought 120 architects, artists, students, designers and craftspeople from twenty countries around the world to the city of Bat-Yam, Israel. Teams had three days and three nights to build projects that responded to the needs of their assigned sites, or "missions." The three winning projects will remain on site permanently.
