Unknown Brutalist Architecture in Hong Kong

Winner: Architecture photograph of the year. Unknown Brutalist Architecture in Hong Kong by Brutalism Hong Kong Research Group.

Judges comments: "Sparking conversation about the juxtaposition between nature and man, this photograph forces us to reckon with the effect that we have had on the world around us. Deemed a metaphor for the current crumblings of society, the image tells a story through contrast – light and dark, technology and nature, evolution and decline. Architecture is central to the image, but part of a much larger narrative that forces us to confront the state of the world that we inhabit."
