AA Visiting School Jordan

July 23-August 2, 2015
Amman, Dead Sea, Jordan Valley

The Dead Sea is a hyper-saline lake that exists at 427 meters below sea level and features a one-of-a-kind extreme ecological condition. It is the lowest point on earth and exhibits a diverse platform for research into the Ecomorphology of crystalline formations.

In 2015, the AA in Jordan continues in its third cycle to build upon research into naturally occurring phenomena in the region, and how these phenomena can inform design methodologies that re-think existing practices. The program will focus on crystalline formations and their potential development at a variety of architectural and urban scales through the use of cutting-edge computational design technology.

The program will bring together a network of distinguished faculty and guests to offer design-research units, specialist tooling seminars, and a guest-lecture series. The series is based in Amman with exclusive visits to the Jordan Valley and Dead Sea.
