This month Dwell talks to Yasmin Lari, the first woman to be certified as an architect in Pakistan. "Having been trained as an architect in the West, for me there was a period of unlearning as I tried to relate to the reality of the country, and roamed our amazing historic towns for inspiration," Lari says, adding, "Today, the profession of architecture has become much stronger and there is now acceptance of the essential role of an architect."
