This is the first major public garden project to be developed in Delhi in almost fifty years. Located on the edge of the city, it provides relaxation away from the pressures of urban living. It draws on the traditions of the historic neighbourhood and respects the natural ecological features of the site. The garden provides a democratic space to benefit all sections of society. There is a broad range of spaces from activity zones (food courts, shops) to contemplative zones (fragrant gardens, lily pool). The project includes one of India’s largest commissions of public art featuring works of over 25 artists.
