e2 - exploring the urban condition

This competition will take place on the internet, 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.

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

Do these urban glitches bother you? Observe and interpret the signs, give
form to your feelings, anticipate the responses !!!
