The project reflects her attachment to her hometown even after spending years in other cities around the country. It is nice to see that our daughters are not limited to only the conventional professions but have started exploring new avenues including architecture and design. Kalashan Dur’ is an exhibition space designed for the preservation of Kalash’s culture. Since this unique tribe is almost on extinction, the idea was to preserve and showcase their art and culture to the main cities, not only for preservation reasons but also to create awareness. After an extensive research study of Kalash tribe through multiple sources, the exhibition space was designed keeping in consideration their art history, music, religion and housing construction techniques. The exhibition space consisted of communal section where their music instruments, clothes and ancestral effigies were displayed -lifestyle section which exhibits their housing items – religion section.– Bakhtawar Salik    ]]>
