The influence of the award-winning Jordanian architect Rasem Badran is rapidly spreading throughout the developing world. His work involves the full spectrum from urban planning to individual residences. His work is human-scaled, responsive to its environment and meets the social and cultural requirements of the people who use it.

For the first time, this volume provides an overview of the work of one who could be seen as the natural successor to the seminal Egyptian architect Hassan Fathy and brings together the architect’s own dramatic collection of drawings, plans and photographs, many seen here for the first time.

A comprehensive chronology of Badran’s work completes this fascinating survey of one of the most influential and revolutionary architects of our time.

James Steele is Professor of Architecture at the University of Southern California. His other works include An Architecture for People: The Complete Works of Hassan Fathy and The Complete Architecture of Balkrishna Doshi, both of which were published by Thames & Hudson.
