Reviews
"Strong words from a strong woman who, throughout her life, has been on the road less travelled."
--Metropolis

"By placing the daily experiences of women and their roles as guardians of nature at the center of her work, Lari sets a precedent from which both architects and activists can learn."
--Arch Daily

"A compelling tribute to an architect who has challenged the status quo and redefined the boundaries of her profession. . . . As the world grapples with the urgent need for sustainable solutions, Yasmeen Lari's approach to architecture provides a glimmer of hope for a more inclusive and sustainable future."
--STIR World
