The Spanish intervention made the site better known to the world and one of the major tourist attractions in Jordan. In 1985 the site was inscribed, with Petra, on the UNESCO World Heritage List The Umayyad Castle of Qusayr 窶連mra is one of the four World Heritage sites in Jordan. It was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985.

QASER AMRA RESEARCH 2013

LOCATION

A PAVILION IN ABDOUN An Architect’s Exibition 2013

Qasr Amra is located on the north side of Jordan’s Highway 40, roughly 85 kilometres (53 mi) from Amman and 21 kilometres (13 mi) southwest of Al-azraq

450 square meters of painted walls

The extensive Fresco paintings of Qusayr Amra depict a seemingly disparate collection of subjects, hunting and bathing scenes, athletic activity, mythological images, dancing girls, acrobats and wrestlers, musicians, royal portraits, astronomical representations, as well as craftsmen at work The interior of the Bath/palace indicates an intensive and very rapid rate of deterioration. The wall paintings are currently in a bad condition. The frescoes appear darkened and severely damaged due to the deterioration of their surface treatments and to the widespread effects of different salts. They caused significant exfoliation of the painting layers

Interventions phases Alois Musil and Alphons Mielich In 1898, Alois who returned there in 1902 with the painter Alphons Mielich in order to copy the paintings that he had seen in his first visit. The resulting publication is still today an important reference given the decay that has partly obscured some of the scenes (Musil 1907). Unfortunately some of the decay was caused by Musil and Mielich themselves, who admit having used chemicals to clean the paintings from layers of black soot (due to the fires lit inside by the local Bedouins). Moreover Musil and Mielich detached some of the paintings, causing further damage in the process. A complete figure and other fragments are today at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, after they were sold by Mielich without Musil’s agreement.

The Spanish intervention

Spanish project under the direction of MartĂŹn Almagro was conducted there between 1971 and 1974, with a second intervention in 1979. Works on site consisted in the archaeological documentation of the site and its surrounding structures.

in the consolidation of the western wall of the main hall (using a reinforced concrete beam) and the consolidation of the vault of the western aisle, and in the cleaning, consolidation, and, in several areas, the repainting of the figures in order to enhance scarcely visible features. Both the repaintings and the application of layers of shellac as a protective substance over the restored paintings were not documented, and were unknown to the scientific community.

QASER AMRA RESEARCH 2013

Italian intervention

The Italian Ministry of Culture stepped in by providing a first grant, in 2009. In 2010 a first sampling campaign took place, in order to study the composition of mortars outside and inside as well as those of the paint layers inside. In October 2010 a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the partners, after a definition of the project’s scope and initial budget.

.....................

TASK

i was still a first year student with not architect’s philosophy and designs enough knowledge in architectural programs i was asked to research the details of roman architecture The typical Roman city of the later Republic and empire had a rectangular plan and resembled a Roman military camp with two main streets—the cardo (north-south) and the decumanus (east-west)—a grid of smaller streets dividing the town into blocks, and a wall circuit with gates.Older cities, such as Rome itself, founded before the adoption of regularized city planning, could, however, consist of a maze of crooked streets. The focal point of the city was its forum, usually situated at the center of the city at the intersection of the cardo and the decumanus.

PLAN OF THE CITY OF ROME

By the time of Augustus, Rome had grown from a tiny settlement on the Tiber River to a metropolis at the center of an expanding empire. Under the republic Rome became the political capital of the Mediterranean and a symbol of Roman power and wealth.

All Roads Lead to Rome

An expanding network of roads helped to link Rome’s distant territories. One of the most important paved military roads was the Appian Way, commissioned by the Roman official Appius Claudius Caecus. It became the major route from Rome to Greece. Although these large lava blocks may not be the original material, the route itself has remained unchanged and in use since it was first paved more than 2200 years ago.

Arches

The Romans used arches to support the things they built. They built victory arches, buildings and aqueducts.

13 1

.............................................................................................................................


Aqueducts There wasn’t enough water in the city of Rome. The Romans brought water in from the surrounding countryside. The water was brought in by tubes called aqueducts. Water is heavy stuff. The Romans needed a structure strong enough to hold all that water to move it from the mountains into the city. The water flowed in a tube on the top of the aqueduct called a water channel. The arches supported the water channel. The water flowed through a rectangular channel.The channel was lined with concrete.

The Coliseum The The The The The

arches are supported by central columns. columns on the first floor are Doric. columns on the second floor are Ionic. columns on the third floor are Corinthian. Romans invented concrete.


Voussoirs The semi-circular stones on either side of the keystone are the voussoirs. The voussoirs bring the weight to the columns that go to the ground.The Romans invented concrete.

Buttresses

The square or rectangular blocks between each arch are buttresses. The buttresses make a column that takes the weight all the way to the ground.
