People’s District, iStrategyLabs, and the National Building Museum launched the 24-Hour City Project as part of the Intelligent Cities Initiative.
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.
Teams 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.
On June 5, the 24-Hour City Project launched a beta competition within the National Building Museum in Washington, DC. On November 11, a second project was launched at Digital Capital Week.
