Evolving Houses, Demanding Practices: A case of rising electricity consumption of the middle class in Pakistan
Speakers Interview: Rihab Khalid (Department of Architecture, University of Cambridge) and Dr Shailaja Fennell (Centre of Development Studies, University of Cambridge)
Rihab Khalid discusses the historical analysis of practise arrangements in the homes of Lahore to help recognise and prevent normalisation of societal standards defining an energy intensive and unsustainable ‘perfect’ home. The three key findings are: a shift of outdoor to indoor activities, inwards to outward oriented home design, and spatial dispersion.
