volume 6 | issue 4

We have been thinking about the idea of compiling an issue based on emerging landscape practices for the last one year, having being receiving project examples from young landscape professionals on various themes and subjects in the last few issues. An invitation to contribute projects was sent to professionals working in different geographical locations across the country including Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and other smaller cities such as Pune, Bangalore, Vadodara, Chandigarh and Hyderabad, the idea being to showcase the variety and scale of projects being designed in India today.
The projects thus received, and covered in this issue, are mostly private in nature, with few falling in public domain. With greater awareness in government agencies about the role of landscape architects in urban realm, examples being seen in the government projects being floated for Commonwealth Games in the capital, we hope and anticipate that the profession will be even more visible in public arena in years to come.
It is always heartening to see professionals in other disciplines doing thoughtful work and is a pointer towards a bright future for the design disciplines in India in general. Last month, DADA & Partners, a consortium of professionals based in Gurgaon won the prestigious SPA Campus urban design competition. We present the prize winning entry of the competition in the issue.
We realize that little information is available in international publications on landscape projects in South Asia. In this issue we present an article on Clock Towers of Pakistan, the first in the series of the new section on South Asia.
