Winning Entries Announced: 'Haiku' Writing Competition 2.0

'Haiku' Writing Competition Series 2.0 floated by Architectural Journalism & Criticism Organisation, India announces the Winning Entries.

Themes described for the Competition were:

- Time travel to an architectural era

Dive into the journey of nostalgia to the gothic gargoyles of the city. In the romanticism of coffered domes, spires, buttresses, ornamented windows, arches; in short travel to the timeless architectural styles- making the quieter times louder than before. What is it, which we will wish evermore again?

- Cultural Thing

What is it that you possess and is at your side in these tough times of Global Pandemic Crisis? An unnoticed ‘thing’ being a part of your culture, tradition or life style does exist. The meaning of which has changed all together due to the recent social distancing measures. If ‘things’ can speak, what message shall it convey to you?

The 'Citation Award' goes to Ramiro Ruben Isaurralde Raitzin, Architect, Denmark

is frozen music, Baroque-
is a banshee's song.

Clay is baked and burnt,
into bricks, to house a Man:
also made from clay.
