one often remembers about Bamiyan Afghanistan are the towering Buddhas that were felled by the Taliban in 2001 What one forgets is the beauty of the UNESCO-protected valley its semi-mountainous terrain and rocky cliffs On the Silk Route Bamiyan was the confluence of diverse cultures and its architecture treads gently respecting the land However given Bamyan’s war-torn present people in these areas have little or no access to healthcare So the Aga Khan Development Network got architect Yawar Jilani and his team at Arcop Pakistan to build and masterplan a hospital for women and children “We were clear that while we wanted to embrace modernity we also wanted to be sensitive to the terrain The relationship to the land was important Many people come to the hospital in carts or on donkeys We have to keep those things in mind” says Jilani speaking at “Windows & Mirrors — Looking at Contemporary Architecture in South Asia” the closing conference of the State of Architecture exhibition last month in Mumbai Accordingly Arcop adopted rammed earth for the external walls in keeping with local vernacular forms and layered courtyards with public and private areas With a central space designed in a Persian Char Bagh style the movement between the courts gives visitors glimpses of the mountains a healing in itself for the locals “The people understand the land Architecture is secondary to the place how could we build anything here” says the 54-year-old The hospital for women and children at Bamyan Being relevant to society was Jilani’s biggest motivation to becoming an architect a lesson he learned from his mentor Ramesh Khosla who was working on the Quetta Serena Hotel in the 1980s The founder member of Arcop Design Group in Delhi architect Khosla and team had just won the Aga Khan Award for the Mughal Sheraton hotel in Agra In 1987 inspired by Khosla Jilani and Mahboob Khan his professional partner set up Arcop in Pakistan “It was the time when Zia-ul-Haq was President He wanted architecture with arches and cosmetic Islamic gestures But I believed there had to be more depth” says Jilani In their three-decade practice they have built homes hotels offices schools even an international airport in Islamabad and have won numerous awards both at home and abroad But it’s social housing that is Jilani’s first love One such was for the Momina Ismailis in Pakistan who migrated from Gujarat nearly three generations ago These agrarian people became the milkmen for Karachi but it took them nearly 45 years to buy a piece of land they could call home The Al-Azhar Garden housing in the city would give people a “sense of community history and pride” The designers observed that religion visits to the jamat khana and gathering together was central to their way of life The development therefore had courtyards plazas and gardens linked by ceremonial pathways “It took us nearly 10 years to build and was an exercise in patience and a belief that something good will come out of it People still felt connected to their villages so the 22 parks in the complex have been named after places in Gujarat” says Jilani Their resilience reflects in the earthy tones of the buildings the Ismaili community live in Ceramic tiles with floral patterns precast concrete jaalis and customised cemented leaf patterns on external walls make their homes artistic yet understated “We had to make it known through our design that they were not just a number but individuals in their own right” says Jilani “Sadly these days with migrations from rural to urban centres that cohesiveness is lost and our cities are no longer people-led” With the firm belief that architecture should be able to give to the community Arcop built 5000 homes each for survivors of the 2005 earthquake and the 2014 floods working with rural communities and local panchayats But they are not only invested in community projects If they have to their credit Ocean Towers (393 ft) a retail and hospitality building in Karachi and Pakistan’s tallest building they are also currently constructing the Telenor headquarters in Islamabad Jilani acknowledges that there are other challenges in Pakistan the primary one being security “People have layers and layers of security in their own homes but they want it in public projects too A client would prefer to have a barbed wire fence even around a school Imagine how that will affect children who study there We have to find ways around it as architects to nurture a sense of trust” says Jilani “In Karachi for the first time the government is working in the urban space by introducing a rapid bus transit in the central business district It’s important that we as professionals engage with the government and they also cooperative with us We need to think out of the box about the way architecture is taught and how it can be made people-centric in the broader sense Else our cities will only deteriorate” For all the latest Lifestyle News download
