In conversation with Nikhil Dhar

Based in New Delhi, Nikhil Dhar is closely associated with many landscape architecture programs in the country. He established his own landscape consultancy practice, Artemisia, in 1996, before joining landscape academics and research as a full-time occupation recently. His passion and interest for the subject of landscape architecture have also led to his participation in various forums including working with ISOLA as part of the Education Board and Conference content committees. Nikhil shares his views about landscape academics, the profession and other issues.
Both of my parents had completed Doctoral degrees in California by the early 1970s, so if not a given, it was fairly likely that, circumstances permitting, I would travel to the US for a Master’s degree. I always had been interested in studying abroad to broaden my horizons. I saw landscape architecture as the most design-oriented fields related to architecture. I joined the program of landscape architecture at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. So my choice of subject was the result of fairly simplistic thinking at the time, but fortunately, I have no major regrets about this decision!
