The collaborative work of landscape architects Anuradha Mathur (1960–2022) and Dilip da Cunha imagines new possibilities for design of the built environment and explores the lines separating land and water, and urban and rural environments. Their interest in how water and landscapes are visualized took them to diverse terrains around the world, including Bangalore, Mumbai, Jerusalem, the Himalayas, and the Sundarbans in southern Bangladesh. Their design practice has included writing, imaging, teaching, and the use of a range of artistic media “to produce works and pedagogical processes that strive to draw out the material complexity and inherent dynamism of places,” they said. Their publications include Design in the Terrain of Water (2014), Deccan Traverses: The Making of Bangalore's Terrain (2006), and Mississippi Floods: Designing a Shifting Landscape (2001). Collectively, their work has been recognized with the Architectural League of New York’s Young Architects Award, Penn State University’s John R. Bracken Fellow Award, and a Geddes Fellowship from the University of Edinburgh. Mathur was a faculty member at PennDesign and da Cunha is a faculty member at Harvard University Graduate School of Design and Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.
