From an email:

How would you make DC better in 24 hours?

On June 5, the 24-Hour City Project will pose that question to three D.C.-based teams of architects, artists, and technologists at the National Building Museum. Teams will compete to build temporary physical and digital exhibitions that explore the intersection of data, arts, and technology within the built environment.

Projects will range from building the first floor of a house to experimenting with holograms to building a 15 foot parabolic structure whose blueprints are derived from DC education data. Through these experiments, teams are encouraged to make the built environment more engaging, relevant to our lives, and accessible to all.

All projects will be built on-site at the National Building Museum (401 F St NW) beginning Sunday, June 5. The event is free and open to the public on Sunday, June 5th from 11 am – 430 pm. The event will also feature DJs, a photobooth, and food trucks.
