Theme for annual competition 2018: U  R  B  A  N  S  C  A  P  E
 
‘Urbanscape’ is the manifestation of the built environment of cities. It not only refers to the configuration of built forms but also the elements that define interstitial spaces. It represents physical built environment of our city. However, what we see today is the progression of ever-increasing skyscrapers that mark the skyscape of a city, overpowering smaller elements. This plays a major role in defining urban landscape.
