[NEWS] Lupin Research Park is shortlisted for LILA Awards 2021 in Campuses and Corporate Gardens
We are proud to announce that our project, Lupin Research Park is shortlisted for this year’s Landazine International Landscape Award 2021 in the category of Campuses and Corporate Gardens.
In Pune, India, the location of Lupin Research Park, is known for its drastic dry climate and heavy monsoon, causing the land to be semi-arid, where little rain occurs in one season and overly compensates in another. This variation in precipitation consequently leads to hostile conditions for the ecosystem to thrive.
Based on India’s local farmer’s wisdom, we learn how this technique of employing step grading can help slow down and retain water while preventing soil erosion on the existing sloped terrains, and in the end, allowing efficient agriculture practice under challenging climate. As a result, this same idea of stepping and the undulating surface is applied to the landscape design and water management preparation, making the overall project survive and thrive sustainably under extreme conditions. Along with thoughtful programming, Lupin Research Park offers an ecologically friendly environment and microclimate, inviting its employees to gather outside amidst greenery all day long.
