« In 1997, in order to celebrate and to announce the launching of the magazine, 2G International Architecture Review convoked a first international ideas competition aimed at students and architects under the age of forty. On that occasion the competition proposed as a design subject the developing of the future headquarters of the Mies van der Rohe Foundation, the body responsible for managing the German Pavilion in Barcelona, created by Mies van der Rohe to represent Germany in the Barcelona International Exhibition of 1929.
On the occasion of the celebration of the magazine’s tenth anniversary, 2G launches a second international ideas competition: 2G Competition. Venice Lagoon Park. This theoretical initiative grows out of taking this publication to be a forum of reflection and a vehicle for the dissemination of unpublished projects which helps to develop and to publicise the ideas of students, architects and related professionals under 40 on the international scene. This ideas competition, which does not involve subsequent phases of the project or its execution, is an inducement to free, non-restrictive reflection, the objective being to embark on a worthwhile debate within the profession. »
