IPPC 2017

Gojal Valley | Gulmit, Ghulkin and Hussaini


In 2017, LVS research aimed to map the cultural practices and living patterns of inhabitants that have developed over time in Gojal Valley. For the Audio Visual Cultures workshop, the field research was carried out on land, animals, plants, water, etc which ultimately lead to listing apx 90 practices and 150 built environment patterns. This in order to archive the practices, and use the patterns in innovate ways in contemporary design and construction.

The catalog will act as a knowledge base for anyone who wishes to intervene in the area with regard to architecture, tourism or cultural development.
