The next 72 Hour Urban Action competition will take place in Derry-Londonderry next year, as part of the UK’s 2013 City of Culture Celebrations. Killing Architects is working on the architecture and urbanism content for the competition.
A workshop was held at the Verbal Arts Centre in Derry on 6 November to lay some of the groundwork for the competition. We spent the day working with a group of local residents, artists, architects, designers and community workers, researching potential sites for the competition and making short films about what we saw and heard in the city. We also met a lot of great people over the course of the week we spent in the city, with some very exciting collaborations in the pipeline.
