‘Haiga’: Haiku, Calligraphy, Painting Series (1stCycle) themed ‘RUINS’ is a joint initiative of  Architecture-Design-Artmagazine and Architecture Journalism & Criticism Organisation. This International Competition calls for ideas from across the globe as per the following brief.


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.

The Competition is ‘Open to All’ – students, professionals and others.
