About the Event

ARCH-verse is collaborating with Megawra to bring you a webinar with architect Yasmeen Lari, Pakistan’s first female architect and the recipient of the Jane Drew Prize in 2020. Lari will share her professional journey - from leading figure in mainstream architecture to passionate practitioner and advocate for zero-carbon, socially responsible, architecture. Lari has devised various programs based on women-centred zero carbon footprint structures and sustainable building techniques, resulting in 40,000 green shelters (using bamboo, lime and mud). She is also the co-founder of Heritage Foundation of Pakistan for safeguarding Pakistan’s cultural heritage and has conserved several historical monuments and heritage sites.
In addition to learning about Lari's work and professional approach, the webinar will also discuss the potential for future collaboration and sharing of knowledge.
