LA25 Anniversary Issue
With the objective of looking at the larger landscape with fresh eyes, personalities from visual arts, music, and of course landscape architects and architects have written on the theme of Indian Landscapes : Images and Perceptions. It encourages the reader to look at word ‘landscape’ in a different way, perhaps with a much broader and more holistic view, bringing him or her closer to its real meaning.
LA26 Design : Tradition, Modernity, Identity
Past can be interpreted by designers not only as an inspiration and motivation for continuity and linkage but also as a source of contradiction and challenge. Should the language of spatial design in the 21st century, in India, or anywhere else for that matter, be inspired by traditions and culture? The Students Design Competition that was organized this year was an attempt to explore questions and issues relating to tradition, modernity and identity in landscape design in India. The other features follow the theme.
LA27 Locating Leisure
The issue of the journal presents articles that take the idea of leisure away from mundane representations of the subject in projects of resorts, hotels and getaway farm houses. Leisure and recreation often overlap. Various features include projects that exemplify the role of city public parks as spaces for active leisure and recreation and a city scale unique vision of linking and developing linear open spaces along the city drains and creating usable open spaces of different scales and nature for neighborhood areas.
LA28 Cultural Landscapes
The sites of Cultural Landscapes may also include areas where this relationship has been established not by a single community but people at large. Cultural landscapes may seem intangible and less understood but is important components of social, historical and ecological realm of a region. Such landscapes are generally democratic in nature and exist in the public domain. They are strong indicators of interdependent nature of relationship of humans with nature, and are therefore tested models of sustainability. The holistic management of these areas thus becomes vitally important.
LA29 Landscape and Planning
A sensitive response to natural resources and systems of the region, creating green infrastructure, a contextual response towards spatial organization, including ideas of sustainability, inclusiveness and pluralism and of course the social dimension are some of the key areas where the discipline of landscape planning is at work on a large scale. This issue addresses these concerns of development, planning, and landscape through essays and viewpoints of professionals workings in these fields. It also showcases innovative examples related to city planning where the idea of holistic development is being thought of, explored and implemented to a certain level.
