volume 3 | issue 1

editorial
From this issues, we are starting a section on designed landscape projects with the objective to demonstrate the work being done in the profession and we look for ward to your cooperation in making our efforts successful.
Memorials invoke images of tranquility and respect perhaps because of their being a link between the living and the deceased. In a memorial project, the task of the designer is possibly much more difficult than with other landscape project as not only one has to pay tribute to the deceased or commemorate an event through the design, but also has to keep a memory alive. In this issue, the selected contemporary memorial projects such as Shakti Sthala, Memorial to Rajiv Gandhi at Sriperumbudur, Vir Bhumi and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial etc., even with their varied conceptual approaches and design expressions, illustrate this quite well.
