The essay describes the commitment of Yasmeen Lari in handing down the culture of Pakistan through the architectural project and the rediscovery of the historical architectural heritage and the local construction tradition; operating in a direction that through architecture implements a rethinking of the contemporary for the sake of social, cultural and environmental progress at the service of men and women, so as to guarantee a safe and healthy refuge for all inhabitants, and a dignified and sustainable future. Architecture thus becomes a tool for education, training, prevention and identity through the rediscovery and reworking of typology, morphology and construction techniques, made accessible to all in a dimension of environmental and social sustainability.
