Architectural Poetry Competition, 6th Cycle: ‘Learnings from Nature’: Call for Entries

About Competition 

Architectural Poetry Competition Series, 6th Cycle is the twenty-first initiative of the Architectural Journalism & Criticism Organization founded by architect Pappal Suneja to spread awareness about this subject and sow the seeds of inspiration to explore and write about Architecture and allied fields from a lyrical perspective.

Theme for the Series in this cycle is ‘Learnings from Nature’

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.

About the Organizer

Architectural Journalism & Criticism Organisation is founded by architect Pappal Suneja to spread awareness about this subject and sow the seeds of inspiration to explore and to write about Architecture and allied fields. As per the curator, Journalism & Critical Appreciation in Architecture must have an immediate connection with the trending techniques. Our prenominal existence in the moment of time is not merely enough to amount for the utterance of spoken or written of the present. The architectural writings serve as reflections at a future day and it needs to be taken ahead at the forefront. We need more of Architectural Writing because all reality is an act of perception; and until there is a perception of happening, it hasn’t happened yet.
