Visiting Faculty for PSDF Luminaire Design Course 2016
During 2013 in my tenure with Unicon, based in Peshawar, I involved CECOS University thirty students (5 teams) of architecture department as interns to lead & supervise documentation and reuse plan of conservation projects like Clock Tower, Yadgar Chowk, Islamia College Building Khyber Bazaar, Namak Mandi as Food Street and reuse Plan for Fort Balahisar as City Centre and Public Attraction. I also participated in CECOS as an external Juror / advisor for final year thesis projects.
I worked at Hazara University architecture department, School of Culture Heritage & Creative Technologies as a Senior Research Supervisor from Feb 2012-Mar 2013 to prepare project proposal for HEC. The project focused on student field studies, documentation and planning exercises in different parts of KPK with potential pertaining to urban issues and physical development. The aim was to prepare project proposals that can be compiled in workshops and presented in seminars to all stake holders for feedback & propagation that can be further undertaken by related government departments, private organizations and donors in active participation of communities, enhancing physical development and poverty alleviation through entrepreneurship and job market. It also included establishment of archive bank for such studies and research that are convened elsewhere and can be benefited where ever required. The project document lies submitted in HEC for further action.
Since Earthquake hit Kashmir, seismology has been a major issue in design and construction. I attended a seminar on seismic considerations held by ERRA and LB&RD at Serena Gilgit that led me to work with Dr. Qaiser Ali Director, Earthquake Research Centre at UET Peshawar. We made a survey in different parts of Northern Areas to identify study areas rich in traditional architecture and seismic resistant construction techniques. The idea was to initiate a project on behalf of Earthquake Research Centre, UET Peshawar & ERRA. During the initial survey we visited villages at Fairy Meadows, Rama Astore, Ghizer, Altit-Baltit and Gulmit in Gojal.
