Buildings in Jordan
We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Jordan Architecture. We aim to include interesting design-led Jordanian buildings / projects.
We cover completed Jordan buildings, new building designs and architecture competitions. The focus is on contemporary Jordanian buildings but information on traditional architecture in Jordan is also welcome.

Wadi Rum Lodges – 21 Apr 2011
International “green” architect Chad Oppenheim sets a new benchmark for design and ecological sensitivity with the Wadi Resort—located in Wadi Rum, Jordan, set for completion in 2014. Oppenheim Architecture + Design (OAD) beat out a global competition and will execute an unprecedented project comprised of 47 desert lodges, setting forth a future primitive experience for the avid globetrotter, an hour and a half outside of Petra, the ancient city of the Nebataeans carved into the desert rock.

Petra is a magical place for the other-worldliness of its topography and geology alone. The power of this landscape must have inspired the Nabateans to make it their sacred home, carving the rock over many centuries to create their city.
