Yasmeen Lari, the first female architect in Pakistan, completed her architectural studies in Oxford, England, before returning almost immediately to her country in 1964. From that moment on, Lari began a gradual but profound revision of the Modern architectural culture through design experimentation, thanks to various public and private commissions during the years dedicated to the profession. Lari intertwined modernist forms and languages with the constructive local culture, intercepting the real needs of communities in listening. The long path of translation, between adaptations and innovations, is the basis of the future developments of her career, both in the field of historical heritage restoration and in the humanitarian one of social emancipation.
