The aim of the project is to integrate the vertical marshlands in the mixed used building typology to revitalize the urban eco-system. The project is situated in the city of Gurugram.

Marshland is a type of wetland which contains majorly grass. Wetlands are areas which are between the water body and the land. Wetlands consists of biodiversity in abundance and play a major role in the environment as they absorb the excess nutrients.

Basai Wetlands is one of the largest wetlands in the country. In the past few years, these wetlands have decreased overtime. One of the main reasons for this is the dumping of the different kinds of wastes in and around the area. Due to the decrease in the wetlands, the migratory birds coming to the area has reduced. Also, this has led to the decrease in the biodiversity in the area. Increased urbanization has also led to such consequences.
