Global warming and the resultant threat to human civilization have made the development model of the industrial society obsolete and we need better and sustainable practices in all fields of life. Therefore, we need to be sensitive to the balance in nature and respect the basic elements: light, sound, earth, sky, and water as they are the basis of life on this planet. Traditional architecture has always lived with nature, but the urban society today needs to relearn from nature to adopt sustainable practices in the urban landscape. The calling of this poetry contest is one’s own supported thoughts for the main contention of the field of architecture: respect the environment and be with nature in all your endeavors.
