Project Description

The Jordan National Museum "tells the story" with narration beginning on sight of the ceremonial plaza. Guests are greeted by two masses, connected by a bridge at the first level. The separation allows extra entrances and a platform for outdoor events.

Inclined stone walls represent the earth stratum of Amman's carved mountains, implying mystery and encouraging curiosity. The layers become more chiseled as the walls rise, representing the progress of craftsmanship, with it evolving into a glass cube at the top.

Designed to revitalize the historic area by creating a cultural urban pause in the busy area, it intrigues visitors to experience Jordanian history in a lively, contextual setting.
