The architect Yasmeen Lari has built countless houses in Pakistan out of clay, lime and bamboo. These buildings have proven to be particularly robust, especially in areas with flooding and earthquakes. What is so special about these raw materials? And why is building with them so climate-friendly? We take a look at the projects in the exhibition and test the materials with our own models.
