Architecture at the Amman Center is based in Studio-X Amman, which operates as a regional platform for conversations and research in architecture, focusing on questions of access, migration, representation, memory, and citizenship in the Arab region. Through partnerships with institutions and individuals on overlapping areas of interest or concern, Studio-X Amman’s projects invite audiences and collaborators to join Columbia’s faculty and students and other partners from around the world for programming and research initiatives. The activities, which include lectures, symposia, screenings, workshops, and seminars, have become recognized occasions for students, architects, designers, artists, and researchers to come together to exchange knowledge and ideas, and for new collaborative projects to emerge. Operating from Columbia Global Centers | Amman, Studio-X Amman has continued to expand and build upon ongoing projects.
