Yasmeen Lari. An Architect

Yasmeen Lari. An Architect
On the occasion of the ceremony to confer the Honorary Degree in Architecture – Laurea Magistrale ad honorem in Architettura e Ingegneria Edile-Architettura – upon Pakistani architect Yasmeen Lari, zero-carbon champion and advocate of the poorest of the poor, a number of events were planned: a workshop on her humanitarian architecture, meeting students participating in the workshop, publication and presentation of a monograph entitled Yasmeen Lari: An Architect.

Workshop students made prototypes (digital reproductions and scale maquettes) of her bestknown humanitarian projects to explore the study of vernacular – updated and enhanced –bamboo construction techniques. These prototypes are shown at LaborA, a physical and virtual modelling laboratory, on Politecnico di Milano’s new Architecture campus.

      LaborA – physical and digital modelling laboratory: Cecilia Bolognesi, Renato Aiminio, Francesca Montaldo 
      Tutors: Simone Balin (ologrammi e modellazione digitale); Filippo Oppimitti (virtual theatre, stampa 3d), Sara Anna Sapone, Arianna Scaioli, Andrea Sogja (modellazione digitale) 
      Students: Tassnim Abdallah, Futaba Amano, Claudia Caccin, Niousha Doroudian, Ahmet Kayagil, Elaheh Nezafat, Giovanni Ossorio, Francesco Pauletti, Ilaria Pellegrini, Micaela Podestà, Federica Ronzitti, Mahsa Salek, Benedetta Tomasina, Guiqiang Yao, Siman Zhang, Jiayu Zhang, Yue Zhong 

      The workshop aims at activating experimentation on the most recent dwelling prototypes developed by Pakistani architect Yasmeen Lari with the Heritage Foundation of Pakistan. 

      Students made physical and digital maquettes of some of Lari’s best-known humanitarian projects (LariOctaGreen - LOG, Woman Center, Pakistan Chulah) both using advanced digital tools (digital maquettes with constructive details that have been reproduced in the Virtual Theatre and the Room of the holograms at Labora, 3d printings, drawings adapted to the decimal metric scale) and making bamboo maquettes of the LOG Lari OctaGreen in scale 1:2 and 1:5, a bamboo housing module aimed at self-construction very resistant to earthquakes be self-constructed and it’s highly resistant to earthquakes. Particular attention was paid to explore the study of vernacular – updated and enhanced – bamboo construction techniques. 

      Physical and digital maquettes made by the students at LaborA – physical and digital modelling laboratory –during the Workshop Yasmeen Lari’s Humanitarian Architecture will be shown to arch. Yasmeen Lari by the students that have taken part in the workshop. Moreover, they will be exhibited in the open spaces next to LaborA and, by reservation of a guided tour, inside the Virtual Theatre and Rooms of the Holograms inside the LaborA on October 20-21-22.
