Ammar Khammash

Founder, Khammash Architects

Jordanian architect, photographer and artist, Ammar Khammash founded his practice in the late 1980s, while he worked as a travelling architect with his office wherever his laptop was. In the decades since, his studio has enjoyed an organic growth and development of a design identity that has seen the completion of context-driven projects across the Levant. His portfolio includes the Wild Jordan Center, the Royal Academy for Nature Conservation, the Darat Al Funun workspace and the Columbia University Middle East Research Center in Amman. Specifying in ethnoarchaeology, Khammash has long been involved in significant historical-architectural constructions and renovations. He is working on a number of projects that continue his combined respect for heritage and contemporary architecture, with the past year seeing an ongoing collaboration with Peter Zumthor on a pedestrian bridge in Jericho.
