The space or the idea of the space is to be re-imagined for the future. You are encouraged
to be innovative and even radical in your responses. Landscape design, rooted as it is in
land, is necessarily impacted by climate, micro-climate and landform and your responses
should ideally take into account all of these factors. Do, however, let your imagination run
free; this is an opportunity to avoid being bound by the constraints that limit us in college
studios and in real life. Do remember that the study is a way of analyzing and understanding
the space and only a small part of the exercise. The main aim is to re-imagine the chosen
space; new ideas and new approaches are what we seek from you. And we want you to
enjoy yourselves while doing this!

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS
1) The entire project (including the analytical study and design idea) shall be
presented in 1 (one) to 3 (three) A1 size sheets in the form of 2D and 3D graphics
and necessary text and mounted on lightweight rigid panels. If you feel that it is
essential, you may add a write-up on an A4 sheet which should not exceed
250 words.
2) The format must have the words ISOLA LANDSCAPE TROPHY clearly noted
at the bottom of the sheets with the NASA logo at the bottom right hand corner
of the sheet in accordance with the NASA guidelines. The mode of presentation
(plan, sections, views, sketches, photographs etc.) is left to the participants.
3) All text should be in English. Choice of scale is up to the participants, provided
everything is clearly legible.
4) CD containing identical data as that on the sheets in a non-editable format should
also be submitted.
5) The entry can be an individual project or a group entry with not more than four
students in a group.

EVALUATION CRITERIA
1) Degree of Understanding of the Brief: A comprehensive understanding of the
issues to be dealt with and an in-depth analysis of the same will form the basis of
developing all further ideas
2) Quality of Ideas: Ability of the proponent to explore and to develop thoughtful,
functional, practical, planning and design concepts consistent and supportive of
creating a responsive open space
3) Quality of Communication: Ability to clearly communicate the proposed ideas in
drawings, images and words

ISOLA LANDSCAPE TROPHY


Tribute to Prof. Mohammad Shaheer
INTRODUCTION
Public open space in India has had a rich and textured history. From courtyards that have
housed religious ceremonies for centuries to Jahangirs magical charbaghs, from village
mela grounds to the urban plazas of todays metropolises, from the ghats of Benaras to the
modern Sabarmati riverfront in Ahmedabad, Indians have designed, built and used open
spaces for a variety of purposes for thousands of years.

Unfortunately in todays India, many factors, ranging from the sheer size of urban populations
to transport pressures and the usurpation of public spaces for private/non-recreational use,
have compromised, distorted and often destroyed the identity and our connections with
open spaces.

THE CHALLENGE
The ISOLA trophy seeks to establish a re-connection with the open spaces that belong to
all of us. An open space of significance to you in a city, town or village is to be studied. The
space may be a garden, street, plaza, heritage precinct, waterfront, marketplace, etc.

Describe the space briefly in terms of:


- History and Context
- Values
- Activities
