Official Opening of Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, Jordan by Foster + Partners

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

Article source: Foster + Partners

Today marked the official opening of Queen Alia International Airport, the spectacular new gateway to Amman. The airport has a highly efficient passive design, which has been inspired by local traditions, and is based on a flexible modular solution that allows for future expansion – the new building secures the city’s position as the main hub for the Levant region and allows the airport to grow by 6 per cent per annum for the next twenty-five years, increasing capacity from 3.5 million to 12 million passengers per annum by 2030.

Dutch Embassy in Amman, Jordan by Rudy Uytenhaak Architectenbureau bv

Amman is a fast-growing city entirely made up of buildings in local natural stone: not only the well-off neighbourhoods but also poorer districts, and not only homes but also offices, hotels, museums and shops.

The Dutch embassy project concerns the renovation of an understated villa within a walled garden. The building was renovated because it was too small, and not earthquake-proof. Hospitality in combination with security formed the essence of the design brief. The entrances and the various consulate functions are situated on the ground floor in the original building layer, while a separate new structure above this houses the public section of the embassy. The building as a whole is given a unified character by a light-filtering portico made of local Jerusalem Stone.

Our designs for a new performing arts centre were inspired the ancient city of Petra – its interplay with nature and the processes of erosion that have reshaped its contours. In this new building erosion becomes the sole means of articulating public spaces, while remaining masses contain the performance spaces.

Techno Group Headquarters in Amman, Jordan by Symbiosis Designs

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

Symbiosis Designs LTD wins design competition to build Techno Group Headquarters in Amman

The building massing concept created a negative space that would be a certain interruption to the continuous street frontal façades; hence a specific and differentiated visual field is announced where the void becomes a captive. The negative field is the primary focal point staging majestic trees. Through the building’s homogenous material expression, the steel structural skin is also a grounding continuum and an assurance of rigor, visual noise reduction and simplicity.
