Historic Preservation
 
Thesis on historic preservation in Pakistan
Hi, I'm starting my final year of BA Interior and Spatial Design in London. I intend to produce my thesis on preservation of historical sites in Pakistan as I'd like to eventually specialise in Historic Preservation and this seems like a good start.

I'll be in Pakistan from July till end September, was wondering if there are any current projects that I can (if possible) get involved with, learn about and focus on for my thesis.

You should look to the work that the Aga Khan Trust for Culture through Aga Khan Cultural Service-Pakistan has undertaken in Pakistan, such as Baltit Fort, Shigar Fort, Altit Fort, Khalplu Palace (pictured at right) or the Walled City of Lahore. Some of these projects are featured in the Archnet digital library. Perform a simple search on Archnet and a trove of documentation exists on these projects including a brochure entitled: Baltistan and Hunza: Conservation and Development Projects and Karakorum: Hidden Treasures in the Northern Areas of Pakistan.
