Having secured statutory protection for over I200 historic buildings in the city, the Heritage Foundation of Pakistan (HFP) has organised a major initiative in Karachi. Under expert supervision, local community volunteers have been mobilised to clean the facades of the city’s fine historic buildings. Starting with the Victorian Gothic Denso Hall (above), built in 1886, it is the first step in creating a pedestrian precinct and the wider environmental improvement of the city’s Old Town. Together with Think City, Malaysia and INTBAU, in November 2019 HFP held an inspirational exhibition and conference which highlighted opportunities for conservation-led urban regeneration in both countries.
