Groupe-e2, a collective of young architects have organised the e2-contest: -an international competition on the urban condition.

This competition will take place on the internet, on the web-site: http://www.groupe-e2.com, and is intended for all students and young professionals in architecture, urbanism and landscape. The competition deals with an exploration of the in between: it is a reflection on the urban blur, gathering zones of disruption and instability in the urban environment. Registration should be carried out on the web-site www.groupe-e2.com, before April 30th 2002. All information concerning the deadlines, the jury, the prizes, the material and the theme, are available on the web site. We would be extremely grateful if you could include this information in your magazine.


Much has been said about the industrial sites, the wastelands, the surrounding infrastructure. groupe e2 have put all that to one side and have moved on to a more abstract plane - the urban blur -Its instabilities, disruptions, strangeness, imprecisions, redefinitions, disorganisations, formlessness, indeterminacies, complexity, incoherence...

The In-Between.
