Pakistan Buildings

This page contains a selection of major Pakistani building designs, with links to individual project pages. We’ve selected what we feel are the key Pakistani Architecture, but additions are always welcome.

We cover completed Pakistan buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Austria. The focus is on contemporary Pakistani buildings but information on traditional architecture is also welcome.
