Amman, mai 2010

L’image révèle la densité urbaine et le mitage des collines, mais aussi l’existence d’une règlementation du bâti et sa prise en compte (hauteurs, volumes, matériau). La photo a été prise du « Wild Jordan », la vitrine de la Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature, une association pour la préservation du patrimoine écologique et la promotion du savoir faire artisanal local, dont l’Irak tirerait grand avantage à importer le modèle.

Urban panoramas 1. Rules, deregulation, speculation

 

Amman, May 2010

 

The picture shows the urban density and the anarchic urban sprawl on the hills, but also the existence of rules applying to constructions and their respect (heights, volumes, materials). The picture was taken from “Wild Jordan”, the showcase of the “Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature”, an association working for the preservation of ecological heritage and the promotion of the local arts and crafts know-how, a model Iraq would be well-inspired to import.
