This year's Mumford Lecture is being convened by Kishwar Rizvi of Yale University and will feature Pakistan's first female architect, Yasmeen Lari. Yasmeen Lari is Pakistan's first female architect. Born in 1941 in the town of Dera Ghazi Khan, Mrs. Lari spent much of her childhood in Pakistan before moving to London at 15 years old. She graduated from the Oxford School of Architecture in 1964 at the age of 23, and later returned to Pakistan with her husband to open their practice, Lari Associates, in Karachi. Since her retirement in 2000, Mrs. Lari has remained active in the architecture community, serving as an advisor to UNESCO, as the executive director of Heritage Foundation Pakistan, and as the chairperson of the Karavan Initiatives. She is also known for her social justice and advocacy, and as of 2014, had built some 36,000 houses for those affected by Pakistan's floods and earthquakes.
