This exhibition is a collaborative effort of a diverse group of researchers, practitioners, young graduates, students and concerned citizens to bring to light important aspects of the city of Ahmedabad. This first endeavor is a documentation of 16 stepwells in and around the city hoping to garner interest and raise discussions not only about the structures themselves, but also larger issues of water, settlement patterns and social relationships to which these stepwells are connected. Within this framework, the exhibition aims to start a conversation on their present condition, their value and the issues of heritage in the context of the city.
