Architecture and Photography are two separate but deeply connected disciplines whose significance has evolved over time. If architecture is the art work of the architect, then photography is the medium which helps capture it. The physical form of the building is a space which is interpreted, defined and visualized through photography.The total prize money for the winner is $4000.
