Lari’s strategies for the development of sustainable architecture at a community-built ‘Zero Carbon Campus’ in rural Pakistan have led to improvements in socio-economic conditions, environmental protection and heritage preservation driven by local villagers. This inspiring project shows the interconnectivity of people, heritage and the environment.

This Culture in Crisis and INTBAU collaborative event is programmed in partnership with RIBA
