title. Amman The Puppet, Columbia GSAPP

date. Spring Semester, 2017

city. Amman, Jordan

description. Research project about the the actual situation of Amman and Jordan, compiling all the information collected on the group in our trip to Jordan at the beginning of the year and combined it with the data collected back in New York using GIS and landsat images. As a group we established the hypothesis that Amman could be understood as a puppet, due to the fact that it has been in constant manipulation by outside sources which determied its development, reflected also in the overall situation of Jordan.

team members. Isabel Carrasco, Gabriela Fiorentino, Zarith Pineda, Haochen Yang
