Walk Series 2016-17

The ISOLA Delhi NCR Chapter Walk Series returns for the third time. As the weather in Delhi makes the outdoors inviting, the walks provides members and friends to step out on weekend mornings. The walks are held every two or three weeks and runs for about two hours. The walks arre a good opportunity for ISOLA members to explore the city through the eyes of senior landscape architects, architects and environmentalists. From historic precincts to designed parks, from an established forest to a nascent planned one, the series is a journey of discovery and engagement.

The first walk was held on October 1st, Saturday, 2016, with environmentalist Vijay Dhasmana through the Aravalli Biodiversity Park. Over the years, this walk has seen the emerging forest develop and grow, much to our delight.

The schedule for the rest of the series will be updated shortly. If you are interested in participating in a walk, do email us at rsvpevents.isoladelhichapter@gmail.com.
