enlighten them about the city,through the exploration of history and architecture in urban condensed setting,creating a tension between the urban fun, landscape and the built environment ,instead of filling the void as usually done, the void was accentuated and celebrated as being multifunctional setting for the attractions with ultimate possibilities and reactivated to bring back the abscent Amman stream via the river of public realm.
