This event is a tribute to the man behind many notable development related revolutions in Pakistan; Arif Hasan.
Arif Hasan is an Architect/Planner in private practice in Karachi. He studied Architecture in the UK and on his return to Karachi in 1968, established an independent practice which slowly evolved into dealing with urban planning and development issues in general and of Asia and Pakistan in particular.
His activism both at the national and international level has led to major changes in favor of local communities and the environment, especially in his own city of Karachi.
He has received a number of awards for his work (which spans many countries) including the UN Year for the Shelter-less Memorial Award of the Japanese Housing Association (1990), the Netherland based Prince Claus Award (2000), and the Hilal-e-Imtiaz of the Government of Pakistan (2001). Recently, he has been given a Life Time Achievement Award by the Institute of Architects, Pakistan (2003). The Orangi Pilot Project-Research and Training Institute also received the British Housing Foundation’s World Habitat Award in 2002.
