Located in Iraq Al-amir, Jordan. Qasr al Abed (Al Abed Palace) is considered one of the main heritage sites in Jordan, nevertheless due to reasons, it has been neglected for a period of time, therefor in attempt to revive the area and create a tourist hub location to attract more attention to it, a visitor center was proposed to be built in a location near the Qasr/ palace, The main concept for the design was based on site visit observations done in the early weeks of design conceptualization, the concept of protection was created as a basis to guide the building outlines and the bus stop that will be located not far form the Qasr as means of transportation for both the locals and visitors.
