‘Haiga’ Writing Competition Announces the Winning Entries

‘Haiga’ Writing Competition Series themed ‘Ruins’ floated by Architectural Journalism & Criticism Organisation and Architecture-Design-Art magazine announces the Winning Entries.

Theme described for the Competition was:


The plasticity of ruins allegorically leads to both natural or man-made calamities and the omnipresent threat of evacuation of meaning from the landscape of human existence. Sublime violence, again either human, historical, natural catastrophe, are processes of creative destruction that offer ruins as potential perspectives in the social, psychological, emotional, environmental & ecological interpretation.
