Lari has cooperation programs with international universities as part of her zero-carbon self-build initiative. At the end of 2022, Rieger-Jandl visited Lari’s mud and bamboo buildings with students from TU Wien as part of their excursion to Zero-Carbon Architecture in Pakistan. Among other things, they have been engaging with questions of cultural heritage, eco-urbanism, and resilient self-construction techniques. In a dialogue with the curators, Andrea Rieger-Jandl leads us through the exhibition Yasmeen Lari: Architecture for the Future and reports on her experiences and the work of the students.
