The world championship for the "72 Hour Interactions" realtime competition is taking place in Witten, Germany later this month!
For 72 intense hours starting July 23 at 6 p.m., five international teams will venture out and transform Witten's neglected public sites through nothing other than creativity and architectural design — while having fun in the process.

"Each team represents one of the cities in the Ruhr valley: Hagen, Hattingen, Herdecke, Wetter and Witten. 60 participants from abroad and from the region transform neglected sites in the city by means of gameful architectural interventions.
The teams have just 72 hours to design and build these interventions on site and real-time. With the starting signal at 6 p.m. on July 23, 2014, the teams receive their missions and the countdown begins for elaborating out the sites’ space potential and translating it on a scale of 1:1 on location. The 'Camp' is a central place. The Breddeschule in Witten provides participants with premises where they can work and exchange ideas and also rest, sleep, eat and have a wash."
"A program of events like film shows, game-testing tours, etc. during these 72 hours will allow citizens and visitors to accompany the creation of the interventions and test them. At the big finale on July 26, 2014, a jury will announce the best works. From then on, all interventions will be open to everybody."
