South Asia Center presents Victor Yu-Juei Tzen, Assistant Professor of Architecture, Syracuse University. Path To Water The step wells and stepped ponds of Rajasthan and Gujarat have been an integral part of life and culture in this region of the Indian subcontinent for well over 1200 years. These water harvesting systems were borrowed, utilized, and adapted over time resulting in a palimpsest of cultural and physical changes. Building from this framework, the lecture focuses upon the rhizomatic nature of these spaces and the summer course deployed to study them.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
