Living Wall Amman
Dates built: 2006-09
Design: Foster + Partners, Architects
Living Wall is a 150,000-square-metre mixed-use complex set on an excavated rock shelf at the base of a sheer cliff face in the centre of Amman. The place, its geology and history have been strong influences on the scheme’s design.
As well as occupying a strategic position in the city, it presents physical challenges that echo those faced at ancient Jordanian sites such as Petra, where the buildings were carved out of the rock itself.

Amman Living Wall Development
Construction has begun on a new Foster + Partners project in Jordan. ‘Living Wall’ is a 150,000 sq m mixed-use complex at the heart of Amman, close to the new Al-Abdali city centre.
The site, an extraordinary carved-out rock shelf, its geology and history have been the inspiration for the schemes unique concept. Set against a sheer 30m backdrop, the project presents physical challenges that are not unlike those faced at ancient Jordanian sites such as Petra, where the buildings were carved out of the rock itself.
