The Department of Architecture & Interior Design is hosting a lecture titled: “Nature As An Architect” by Ammar Khammash.

Khammash was born on 8 October 1960 in Amman, Jordan. He obtained a B.A. in Architecture from the University of Southwestern Louisiana in the United States in 1986, and he studied Ethnoarchaeology at the Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology at Yarmuk University in Irbid, Jordan in 1987 and 1988. Khammash established Ammar Khammash Architects, a practice in Amman that encompasses more than just architecture; rather, his company helps clients with circulation and landscape management, building design, and interior design. He is one of Jordan’s most noted architects, and also an accomplished artist and photographer. Since 1990, he has mounted a number of solo exhibitions of his paintings in Jordan, India, the United States, and Germany.
