Hakim This book by James Steele on the work of architect Rasem Badran of Jordan is a wonderful contribution to architectural literature and a valuable documentation of the work of one of the most talented Arab architects of the current period.
I know both the author and the architect, and it is indeed a pleasure to see the hard work of James Steele, over many years, brought to fruition. What are most refreshing in this book are not only the photos and discussion of Badran's built projects but the unique style of his sketches that were used to establish the design concepts and their subsequent development.
The sketches are reproduced in their original color and some can be classified as works of art in their own right. The book starts with an introduction, followed by seven chapters, a chronology of Badran's work, notes, bibliography, a glossary of terms, and an index. The chapter titles sequentially are: 1. A narrative on people, place and culture, 2. Creative heritage and the return to the east, 3. Houses and housing, 4.
The fourth dimension is the spirit, 5. Preserving a living history, 6. An earthly paradise, 7. Rediscovering the Islamic city. Chapter two is a testament to how important it is to understand one's background, such as Badran's, in shaping his views and outlook on how he uses his skills in forging forward with an architecture that is an important contribution to his region and the world at large.
It is only by a careful reading of this book and examining its illustrations, that one can truly appreciate Badran's distinctive design process and the sensitivity of his architecture. Issues regarding the theoretical implications of Badran's architecture is beyond the scope of this review and might be gleaned from Steele's analysis and interpretations. Go to Amazon.

The Architecture of Rasem Badran : Narratives on People and Place
Rasem Badran's influence is rapidly spreading throughout the developing world. His work involves the full spectrum of the built environment, from urban planning to individual residences. He concentrates on making architecture that meets the social and cultural requirements of the people who use it, as well as being place-specific in response to environmental conditions. Born in Jerusalem in , Badran was educated in Ramallah and then in Germany, which had a profound impact on his approach to design. His well-balanced education, beginning with a traveling apprenticeship with his father and continuing through a fertile and exciting time of experimental architecture in Europe, has allowed him to weave a systematically rational, Western methodology with the intuitive traditions inherent in his own cultural background. Badran designs buildings and environments that stand in stark contrast to self-conscious, anonymous architecture devoid of any reference to people, place, or culture.
