I believe Architecture was my destiny. I have always been keen to draw and curate creative stuff around me. Born and raised in the beautiful nature-loved valley of Parachinar I was always attracted towards the splendour of the hills, the canyons and the cliffs became part of my subconscious mind and I used to draw them on paper at home.

Soon drawing and sketching became my obsession. Moving to Karachi for further education made a new impression on my thoughts and lifestyle. When it was time to choose my discipline for higher education it was easy for me, Architecture was more obvious to me than anything else.

The role of an architect is still yet to become eminent in Pakistan. In the Pakistani social strata, the role of an Architect is still ambiguous. Many think they are replaceable, but the fact of the matter is, Architects, play a vital role.

Pakistan lags behind in urban planning by a long stretch. This is becoming a serious problem owing to our exceptional population growth. The government needs to play its role and come up with policies, mechanisms and infrastructure for future cities.

The most important takeaway from my experiences so far is the lack of recognition in the society for architects and architecture itself. Architecture needs to be given its due place, both on the government and public levels. Architects should not be replaced, rather they should be at the forefront when it comes to planning and design.
