Brief About The Project: 

Tackling the axis of issues in Jordan and the region, Mersad is a regional Urban Observatory (UO) that acts as a model to improve the quality of life in the city; its pop-up parking structure offers a solution for the pressing issue of water scarcity, leftover development scars, lack of public spaces and parking. While as a whole it acts as an inclusive urban park in which knowledge shapes understanding and understanding leads development by proposing an innovative and sustainable approach for expression and activism.
