Brief About The Project: 

Amman's architecture is well known for its use of stone. When Amman was a small city, quarries were located away from the urban center, but as the city grew, these quarries became within it. These quarries, along with neglected excavations, are leaving huge voids in the city's fabric. This project concentrates on how these voids may affect the quality of life in Amman, and on exploring the potentials of rehabilitating such sites.
