Greater Amman Municipality
Amman, Jordan

This project is located in the Amman downtown area. It houses the City Hall of the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM), and includes the Mayor’s offices and the City Council's Chambers, as well as meeting rooms and senior staff offices. The base / ground floor of the building consists of four segments that surround a circular courtyard. One of the segments functions as an entrance to the floors above; the other three house public exhibition areas. Local limestone is used as the external sheathing material, but is also used to sheath a number of interior surfaces.
