BRIDGING THE GAP
Akshay Kaul
LA 71
Based in New Delhi, Akshay Kaul, established his practice in mid 90s. Along with it, he has remained closely associated with many landscape architecture programs in the country, as a studio guide, thesis mentor and as jury member. In this special feature, Akshay shares his journey, his inspirations from his formative years and later life and his work philosophy.
As a person, I feel my work reflects the subtle impact of partaking in nature while growing up in different geographies and ecologies in India and abroad. Three separate places have had the most influence on me. My schooling in Chhattisgarh; an undergraduate in Manipal, Karnataka; and graduate studies and work in Upstate New York and the Bay Area, California.
