24 Hour City Project
If you had just 24 hours to impact your city, what would you do?
As a creative experiment in temporary urbanism and digital innovation, the 24-Hour City Project explores the intersection of data, arts, and technology within the built environment. The project aims to demonstrate how technology, imagination, and innovation can envision our future cities.
On June 5, the 24-Hour City Project will launch a beta competition within the National Building Museum in Washington, DC. Three interdisciplinary teams will put together temporary physical and digital exhibitions to see who can most effectively visualize the intersection of data, arts, and technology with the built environment. Through these experiments, teams are encouraged to make the built environment more engaging, relevant to our lives, and accessible to all.
Teams will be judged on their creativity, relevancy to the general public, interdisciplinary approach, and ability to be replicated elsewhere. Delegates to the National Building Museum’s Intelligent Cities forum will server as judges, but we are also looking for YOUR vote for the experiment that you think makes our communities more intelligent.
All projects will be built on-site beginning Sunday, June 5 and remain on display through the Intelligent Cities Forum on Monday, June 6, 2011.
