An exclusive look at architect Rasem Badran’s personal sketches
Influential Palestinian-Jordanian architect Rasem Badran, who has long worked to create cultural institutions and private developments across Saudi Arabia and the greater Middle East, has shared personal sketches with Middle East Architect.
The winner of multiple architecture awards including the Aga Khan Award for Architecture, received for the design of the Grand Mosque of Riyadh and redevelopment of Riyadh Old City Center in 1995, Badran has exhibited his drawings in a 2016 family exhibition in Berlin that included the works of his children and relatives.
Middle East Architect‘s November issue will feature Badran’s work in Saudi Arabia, as well as the architect’s recent conversation with prolific Iraqi architect and academic Rifat Chadirji.
Here, designMENA offers an exclusive look at Badran’s personal sketches, which show the architect’s love for aircraft design and provide a glimpse into the chaos of his imagination.
