Meet the Pakistani architect Yasmeen Lari, who in 2023 received the RIBA Royal Gold Medal in recognition for her humanitarian and social conscious work.

"What architects have is this amazing skill for design. And that is needed when you have disparities. When you have deficiencies in resources. When you have a whole mass of people who have nothing. And as an architect, you can relate to them because you are trained to think of the context, to design for the context."

"Also, we are taught this amazing ability of coordination with all kinds of different disciplines. We know how to think of our clients, and if you consider the poor people as your client, then you will think that way. So I think architects are the best people to serve humanity today.".
