Old Houses of Jordan

Turab (Turath Al-Urdun Al-Baqi)


“We study, preserve and enjoy old houses for reasons beyond the technical and decorative aspects of their design, or even their utilitarian functions. This fascinating book, which focuses on houses in Amman built during 1920-1950, is important because houses do not represent static moments frozen in time, but dynamic links between our present identity and our historical roots.”
                              -H.M.Queen Noor Al-Hussein
