On Sustaining Beauty - Local Solutions for Global Challenges
The Aga Khan Public Lecture. (Presented by the Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture at Harvard University.)
This video documents a presentation by Anna Heringer who spent one year in Bangladesh learning about development, and since then, has been involved in development work. She realized the "Handmade-School" in partnership with Eike Roswag and together with a team of craftsmen from Bangladesh and Europe in 2005/06. She continued her work in Bangladesh by implementing her ideas of sustainable architecture in rural housing projects. An important focus of her work is the training of young architects in various lectures and hands-on workshops.
