2020 Busan Architecture & Urban Photo Competition

In Architecture, materials aren’t simply limited to the element which composes a structure. The materials are reproduced according to the substance, but importantly, it signifies being greater than the mass only. Thus, it plays a key role in the perceptional process when the five senses are used including the touch feel materials. Furthermore, it indicates that such experiences undertaken by human beings can be integrated through the sense organs. Materials related to the senses of human beings include a metaphysical meaning such as regions, context, land, and memory. Therefore, this competition is aimed at showing architecture and cities that are reproduced in relation to the materials and the senses of human beings.

Eligibility: Anyone who has a keen interest for architecture and the city (unrestricted to nationalities).
