建筑诗歌比赛系列(英文诗,不超过 40 行),第5期是由建筑师PapPal Suneja创立的建筑新闻与批评组织的第十八个倡议,目的是传播对这个主题的认识,并播下灵感的种子,从抒情的角度探索和写作建筑及其相关领域。
 
本期主题是“失落的社会可持续性”。
 
让我们回顾人类开始与社区成员一起生活在永久居民点的时代,相互依赖才能生存。他们在同一条路上工作,在附近的寺庙见面,他们的女人聚集在社区的水井或手泵前,他们的孩子在街上自由玩耍,当他们的祖母坐在阳台上的帆布床上看着他们时,他们没有受到伤害的感觉。所有人都有一种共同的主人翁意识,他们能很快识别出反社会的因素。
 
时代不同了。
 
现在到处都可以看到汽车,整天都可以看到,直到城市都睡着了。人们想要离开拥挤的街道;还有一些人是以重建和康复的名义流离失所的。然后,还有第三类人迁移到外围,形成封闭的飞地,那里的物理障碍很高,只允许偶然的社会交流。那些生活在封闭飞地的人生活水平较高,但他们生活在随时可能被抢劫或杀害的恐惧中。由于街道空无一人,邻居们仍然是陌生人,孩子们不在外面玩耍,奶奶没有人可以交谈,她的婴儿床也没有任何空间。建筑诗意循环呼唤对“社会可持续发展”这个失落的领域--失落的世界--的探索。
 
我们欢迎来自大学生、专业人士、院士、研究人员和设计爱好者的诗歌(向所有人开放)。
 
 Architectural Poetry Competition Series, 5th Cycle is the Eighteenth initiative of the Architectural Journalism & Criticism Organization 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.
 
Theme for the Series in this cycle is 'The Lost Social Sustainability'
 
Let us look back at the times when human beings started living in permanent settlements along with community members, depending on each other for survival. They worked on the same road, met at nearby temples, their women congregated at the community well or hand-pumps and their children played freely on streets, with no sense of harm as their grandmas sitting over verandah cots watched over them. All had a sense of ownership that was communal and they could quickly identify anti-social elements.
 
Times have changed.
 
Now cars are seen all around, all day long, until the cities sleep. People want to get out of congested streets; there are those who are displaced in the name of redevelopment and rehabilitation. And then, there are those third kinds who move to the periphery to form gated enclaves, where physical barriers are high, allowing only incidental social exchanges. Those living in gated enclaves have higher living standards, but they live with a fear of being robbed or killed at any moment. As streets stay empty, neighbors remain strangers, kids do not play outside and grandma has nobody to talk to, neither her cot any space. The Architectural Poetry Cycle calls for an exploration into this lost realm of 'Social Sustainability' - a lost world.
