In November 2014, the awards presentation of Landscape Foundation Students’ design Competition in Trivandrum brought together many Kerala-based design professionals, to participate and associate with the world of landscape architecture - both in academics and in practice. It was the first time ever when an event based exclusively on the practice of landscape architecture was organized in the southern India. We do hope the winning entries and presentations of landscape professionals and designers were able to generate interest and broaden the knowledge base amongst local professionals. The issue brings to the reader a special feature on the event.

Sanskriti Kala Kendra stands as a unique engagement of nature and humans, addressing the functional and aesthetic needs of both, in a physical and philosophical context, and in a harmonious way. It is a milestone in landscape architectural design in India, aging gracefully and bringing much pleasure to those who visit it. Delhi based landscape architect Nikhil Dhar reviews it for our readers.

We first saw Dani Karavan’s projects during the inaugural Indian Society of Landscape Architects ISOLA Conference at Mumbai in 2003, where he was one of the guest speakers. The work of this renowned Israeli artist explores the connection with the history of site and region and his proposed creation which gives his designs a strong sense of place that is deeply rooted and is contextual. During his visit to Mumbai a few months ago, LA Journal had the opportunity to share his thoughts, on many aspects that affect him as an artist and as a human being.
