21 January 2021

On 20 January, a joint Lecture Series was organised online by the AKU-ISMC and the Aga Khan Trust for Culture’s Education Programme with the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat (AKAH) and the Aga Khan Museum. Panelists highlighted innovations in materials, design and adaptation of local and traditional building practices to promote greener construction. Panelists from AKAH discussed their work on adapting and introducing green building elements in remote and vulnerable communities across South and Central Asia. Saif Ul Haque Sthapati, architect of the Arcadia Education Project, winner of the 2019 Aga Khan Award for Architecture, talked about the unique features of this modular, amphibious school complex designed to adapt to its river environment.
