This essay introduces the section dedicated to the professional figure of Pakistani architect Yasmeen Lari. Beginning with her training and interpolating the geographical and socio-economic contexts in which she has worked, her professional trajectory is briefly illustrated: from large residential and public complexes to single-family homes, from the study and recovery of her country’s architectural and urban heritage to her contributions ‘in the field’ during natural disasters suffered by the most disadvantaged populations. It is a maturation not only professional but also human, which has distinguished her thought and work.
