  4. 4. S I T E LOCATION THE GARDEN OF FIVE SENSES IS LOCATED AT SAID- UL-AZAIB VILLAGE, CLOSE TO THE MEHRAULI HERITAGE AREA IN NEW DELHI. THE 20-ACRE SITE IS SPECTACULARLY BEAUTIFUL, SET AMONGST MAJESTIC ROCKS. IT WAS INAUGURATED IN FEBRUARY 2003. SAKET METRO STATION IS THE NEAREST MODE OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION TO ACCESS THE GARDEN.
  5. 5. The garden of five senses is not just a park. It is a space with a variety of activities, inviting public interaction and exploration. The project designed by Pradeep Sachdeva and associates for Delhi tourism & transportation development corporation, was conceptualized to answer to the city's need for leisure space for the public, for people to socialize and unwind. Such spaces add atmosphere and life to a city and cater to all sections of the society. The project is designed to stimulate one's sensory responses to the environment. An amalgamation of color and fragrance, texture and form evokes the awareness of touch, smell, sight, sound and taste. The entry to the garden is ticketed and it is open from 9am to 7pm throughout the week. The garden of five senses also has many well- established restaurants and bars, like fio, the zoo, cacique, spice and the Indian kitchen, that attract people during late evening hours.

  8. 8.  The design draws inspiration from the neighboring archeological park and Qutab Minar.  The garden has been planned to respect the natural ecological feature of the site- the native plants and the beautiful rocky ridge outcrop.

  9. 9. This park was developed with the intention to promote tourism and provide for other formal activities like various festivals. The ticketing system discourages day to day leisure activities like strolling, jogging, playing etc common in other parks. This park is a theme based design and hosts various festivals round the year. The food festivals, organized every now and then are delights. There are also sherbet Melas to boot . other festivals include garden tourism festival, Dandia festival, sit and draw competitions etc. Picnicking is also rampant during pleasant weather. A C T I V I T Y P A T T E R N RELATING TO THE SURROUNDINGS The project was designed to fit within two contexts - one is the present city of new delhi which is a large bustling metropolis. Also, delhi has traditionally been a city of gardens. This project was seen as an extension and development of the tradition. The garden is located adjacent to the mehrauli archaeological park. Construction materials and building forms were selected to be in harmony with this historic precinct.
  10. 10. “THE GARDEN GOT AGA KHAN AWARD FOR ARCHITECTURE IN 2010” o The garden was planned to be contemporary in spirit and yet draw on the traditions of the historic neighborhood. o To respect the history and draw inspiration from the neighboring Mehrauli Archaeological Park and Qutb Minar (World heritage Monument) and complex with the Quwwat-Ul-Islam Mosque. o To explore the dynamics between the built and the un-built. o To look at the wider perspective of ‘Garden as Public Space’. It therefore has a broad range of areas, from the more intense activity zones, like the food courts and shops, to contemplative zones, like the fragrant gardens, color gardens, and the Lily Pool. o To try and develop a democratic space which would benefit all sections of the society. o To make it financially self-sustaining and generate enough revenue for the maintenance. o To create a sense of joy and fulfillment for all who visit the garden. CONSTRAINTS: One of the major constraints was to be able to develop the project keeping in view the ecological sensitivity of the site. The 8 Hectare site is situated on the foothills of the Aravali hill range. It therefore limited the space available for built up forms. This was because the design intent was clear as to not disturb the rocky features on the site. The budget was also limited. GUIDING I D E A S

  12. 12. THE DIFFERENT ZONES IN THE GARDEN: KHAAS BAGH The garden is built on the lines of the mughal gardens. At the entrance of this formal garden, there is an exciting piece of sculpture, a tree fountain, cast in brass, by john bowman. Slow moving water cascades in channels along the length of this garden. Flowering and fragrant shrubs and trees line its paths. A walk along the central axis leads to a series of fountains some which are lit up by fibre-optic lighting systems. NEEL BAGH The meandering paths then lead up to neel bagh which is a pool of water lilies encircled by pergolas covered with climbing plants of different colours and textures. At the centre of the court is a stunning wind chime, crafted by ceramist kristene michael. It is made up of hundreds of ceramic bells hanging overhead to catch the wind. T Y P O L O G Y O F S P A C E S
  13. 13. COLOUR GARDENS Narrow pathways, made of various natural materials, snake along compositions of colour, with flowering shrubs and groundcovers that complement each other. The common lantana displays itself at its best when it is covered by multiple hues of hundreds of butterflies which depend on the plant for food. TACTILE AREA Apart from the various texture & color that one encounters in the materials used in the garden the tactile area is especially designed to stimulate the sense of touch. Weather beaten rocks with remarkable textures and colors from the banks of the river ganga are coming to be a focus in the tactile area. SOLAR ENERGY PARK A solar energy park has been set up with the help of ministry of non renewable energy sources. This section of the garden is meant to bring about awareness in utilization of renewable sources of energy. It comprises of a 20kw. Solar power plant which meets the requirements of running the solar park.
  14. 14. COURTS OF SPECIMEN PLANTS: Moving southwards from the court of lilies are a cluster of courts which feature plants whose names are commonly heard but those which are not often seen. Some of the courts of specimens are: Bamboo court, cacti & succulent court, herb garden, court of palms AMPHITHEATRE Blocks of sandstone nestled amongst the natural slope of the site serve as seating for the open air theatre. The back drop of magnificent rocks adds to the dramatic setting. T Y P O L O G Y O F S P A C E S
  15. 15. There is fairly limited built form and large open landscape spaces. The site can be primarily be divided into two zones: ·Intensively landscaped and developed zone (intensive zone) ·Rugged zone. The intensive zone is in the periphery of the site where large amounts of detailed paving's have been done with intensive landscaping done. This area also has more activities, e.g., Food courts, shops, special theme gardens and the pathways etc. This area also has a special project - solar energy park. The rugged zone comprises of the higher parts of the site with mainly natural rock formation. There has been minimal design intervention in these parts. The project has been designed in a manner that there is more active usage of the intensive zone and a spare use of the rugged zone. L A N D S C A P E P A T T E R N
  16. 16. L I G H T S A N D W A T E R LIGHTING IN THE GARDEN The lighting categories are as follows: ·Pathway lighting provided through post top lanterns and Bulkheads ·Flood lighting and highlighting of features and landscape Through floodlights and par spotlights. ·Specialized lighting like underwater lights and fiber optic Lights. WATER FEATRUES There a re multiple ways in which water has been used as a design element in the garden: ·Flowing channels of water has been used in the khaas bagh reminiscent of Mughal gardens. ·There are fountains installed ·at many places including the elephant pool. ·The Neel bagh has a lily pool ·And there are other water pools in the garden as well.
  17. 17. Following the norm of art in public spaces a committee was set up to commission a large number of art works for the garden. Most of the works of art commissioned are dynamic, making it more interactive to the visitors. About 25 different sculptures and murals have been commissioned for the project making it one of the largest commissions of public art in the country. The works are primarily contemporary. However a “phad” wall painting by the rajasthani master craftsperson shantilal joshi has been made on a wall. Also remarkable terracotta pots by master craftsperson's angoori devi and giri raj shah have been installed. A R T I S T I C I M P R E S S I O N

  21. 21. ISSUES AND PROBLEMS • There is no proper maintenance. • interactive spaces could be created to make the area to get its complete potential out. • The garden is useful only when it is booked for some concerts and shows and gives benefits and all the other times it is just a good place for couples to have a nice time together.
