editorial
In the last four months, we have seen the passing away of four important personalities of India M.N. Buch, Charles Correa and Prabhakar B Bhagwat and Nek Chand. While Buch, Correa and Bhagwat had significant impacts on the practice and discourse in the spatial design professions in India, Nek Chand achieved worldwide fame with his relentless passion and dedication to a single project.

The contribution of Charles Correa to the discipline of architecture and planning in India is much celebrated. A dynamic professional who was always ready to take on new challenges, roles, experimented and learned from them; a firm believer in the idea of India; a thinker and a visionary whose intellectual discourse and ideas have been inspiring for every generation. Correa, an iconic figure of the 20th century will live on in the minds of professionals and students through the legacy of his path breaking projects and deeply cherished thoughts.

Prabhakar B Bhagwat nurtured scores of young students for decades who imbibed the core value of environment and ecology in landscape architecture and design. Under his guidance, the landscape programme that he started in CEPT University Ahmedabad in 1993, became known for a strong research based ecological approach towards design with the natural environment. Many successful young practices in India are headed by students from this programme.
