Open Call: Architectural Poetry Competition Series, 2nd Cycle


Architectural Poetry Competition Series, 2nd Cycle is the seventh initiative of the Architectural Journalism & Criticism Organization, India 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.

We respond to the world and weather. We respond to ourselves. We respond. We.

Brief: Creativity should evolve between tradition and modernity. As a tree sheds deadwood on its own, we evolve with respect to time, space, and people. Change is desirable and unavoidable – beneficial or disastrous. Technology is at its brilliance, yet, we crave for a safer world with sustainability and resilience – a balance between Humanity and Nature. A Resurgence of the traditions, to which we are the first signatory for comprehending our diversity and portraying ideas in a unified approach, is what shall aid in creating today’s much needed Responsive Environments.
