About the Book

A poignant eco-biography about Pakistan’s first female architect and humanitarian, Yasmeen Lari, who invented sustainable and affordable housing amid natural disaster, featuring back matter with photographs of Lari and her work.

From an inquisitive and compassionate young girl to a world-renowned and award-winning architect and humanitarian, Yasmeen Lari has an empowering and inspiring life story. Learn about her success in a career dominated by men, her early work of advocating for and restoring historic buildings in Pakistan, and her turn to eco-friendly and sustainable design in the wake of natural disasters.

Starting in 2005, earthquakes and floods raised Lari's attention to the need for rehabilitation building. The pioneering architect met the challenge head-on. Incorporating innovative modern design and traditional building practices and materials, Lari developed a blueprint for sustainable, disaster-resistant homes. Vibrantly illustrated, Yasmeen Lari, Green Architect gives an in-depth look at Lari's process from design and testing prototypes to teaching the communities she served the skills needed to rebuild alongside her.

Delivering stunning illustrations and detailed text, Marzieh Abbas and Hoda Hadadi weave together a powerful ode to a contemporary icon. Back matter includes expanded biographical information about Lari in addition to photographs of her and her work.
