Echelle Inconnue started in Rouen in 1998 around the preoccupation: “what is this space we live in? Is it architecture? Urbanism?” This interrogation about city is expressed in projects in public space with architects, artists, students, residents, homeless people, the travelling community or militants, in projects ranging from mapping exercises, building projects up to a cattle run in their home city of Rouen.

Echelle Inconnue sets up workshops in those places where people they work with are living (a travellers' site, homeless centre, alter-globalist village), geographically covering cities like Annemasse, Naples, Budapest, Montréal, Bordeaux and Orléans.
