Description

Jafar Tukan: Poetry in Stone is the first in depth study of the life and work of the late Palestinian master Jafar Tukan, who was inarguably one of the most influential architects in both his adopted nation of Jordan as well as throughout the Middle East. For the first time, the full impact of his attempt at raising the professional standards of his entire region has been recorded. Through this process he completely altered the design aesthetic of his home territory of Amman over the course of his remarkable career. As a result, the image of his homeland and its capital city has been irrevocably changed. That feat has been accomplished through a wide variety of building types, including mosques, private residences, housing projects, hotels, recreational facilities, museums, commercial complexes, office buildings, embassies, banks, and universities. Jafar Tukan demonstrates an unparalleled skill at maintaining the delicate balance between past, present, and future, tradition and technology, and rationality and passion, to an extent not found in the work of any other Muslim architect of his time.
