Landscape Exhibition :
The narrative of Indian Landscape Design is large, and fractured, and any attempt to map it fully is fraught with problems; most that perhaps will take years to surmount. This exhibition, then does not aim at comprehensiveness, as much as it aims at incisiveness.
The exhibition attempts to create a lens; through which practitioners may care to evaluate the world of landscape design and its meanings today, and in the near future, or for the interested person who just wants to know about the world of landscape design, and certainly for the student, who may find the story of landscape design, enriching his/her thinking about design in general.
Another facet of this adventure is to make the idea of the garden, central to the discussion. The meaning or rather the many meanings of a garden are often forgotten, and the searching of these meanings will lead one to find the core of the profession; a place from where many forays not just in the world of design can well be launched.
24 Intercessions :
Exhibition at School of Architecture at Tiruchirapalli C.A.R.E. at Trichy , hosts an annual architects series. The first time around they had invited Mohammad Rafiq Azam from Bangladesh. Last year (2014) its was us.
What was really interesting about this event, is that its perhaps the first time that an architect’s office did an exhibition of works along with the lecture.
It showed 24 projects, hence the name of the exhibition “24 Intercessions” and the lecture was titled “ Spelt in Black and White – This is it”.
