  • Exploring the Edge » CSBE
    provided by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts Chicago Introduction When experiencing the built environment we search for appropriate scale contrasts between light and shade expressive colors and textures high levels of craftsmanship and sensitivity to local climate and natural landscape However we often are presented with poor quality buildings that are out of scale sidewalks we cannot use streets that are too dangerous to cross and gardens that consume too much water or are left to dry out and decay Still Jordan has craftsmen architects landscape designers and urbanists committed to exploring new design ideas materials and construction techniques and to creating better buildings spaces and cities Exploring the Edge is a new feature of the CSBE web site that aims at bringing these pioneers and their work to light Exploring the Edge presents examples of contemporary design projects relating to the built environment in Jordan that are both innovative and committed to design excellence Such projects can be architectural or urban small or large private or public built or unbuilt One project will be featured on the CSBE web site every year and will be provided with documentary information and an analytical framework relating

  • Moustadam » CSBE
    series of essays which takes on the heading Moustadam the Arabic term for Sustainable is a continuation of CSBE s efforts relating to issues of sustainable urban living It aims at spreading information about some of the latest sustainable initiatives taking place around the world and at helping explain practical approaches that may lead towards greener more sustainable modes of living Luckily we in Jordan are aware of the challenges we face but we still have made very little progress in terms of identifying let alone implementing possible solutions We read every now and then about possible amendments to existing regulations that would allow people to produce electricity in their homes We read about a possible installation of wind turbines in Aqaba to produce electricity or about a sizable project aimed at lighting up the city of Tafileh through solar energy These however remain isolated initiatives that need to be part of a clearly thought out sustainability master plan I therefore will try to introduce though these essays ideas about changes we can make to our existing daily living practices that may make them more sustainable I also hope that these essays will encourage readers to share with us their insights and experiences about the subject We have made a big mess in terms of how we have used or more accurately misused our natural resources but this doesn t mean that we cannot find ways to change things for the better We need to figure out a way to move forward Through my personal experiences I have had the chance to work on issues relating to urban planning and management in two Jordanian cities Amman and Aqaba Through these experiences I have come to the clear conclusion that we simply cannot go on living as we do Jordan s population continues to increase and the services that the city needs to provide to its residents have to keep up with this population increase Our infrastructure systems need continuous maintenance and upgrading All these are serious challenges that are becoming increasingly difficult to meet In addition to my experiences in Jordan my travels have taken me to four of the world s seven continents These travels have given me the opportunity to investigate how a sizable part of the world s population is living I have seen development and underdevelopment I have experienced clean cities and polluted ones I have been in congested high density as well as sprawling cities and I have been able to walk comfortably in some cities but could not move in others without a car As often is the case my travels have provided me with a deeper understanding of the cities in which I have lived Through the upcoming essays of Moustadam I will take a good look at the mess in which we have put ourselves I will try to identify what went wrong and when things started going wrong From there I will move to identifying the consequences of our living patterns
