GRADUATION PROJECT Adaptive Reuse of Mithqal Al Fayez’ Guesthouse

PROJECT TYPE Adaptive Reuse PROJECT YEAR 2020 – 2021

SUPERVISORS Professor Kamel Mahadin Architect Ihab Amareen STUDENT Jude Zoubi 1710188

INTRODUCTION The tribalism debate is at the heart of Jordan’s struggle to sustain and cultivate a national identity. This project explores how tribal identities have affected the urban structure of Jordan. Causing urban segregation, strengthening differences, and the creation of separate public spaces for the socialization of different communities. Bearing in mind all these aspects, the main aim of this project is to escape from those “communization” and fragmentation strategies and to promote a public space with genuine central and unifying functions, able to reinforce socio-cultural cohesion within Jordan.

The project will re-define the concept of Al Madafa. From a space that is meant for the socialization of specific individuals, to a space that is meant to create unity, harmony, and equivalency. A space where people can feel greater self-acceptance, a sense of belonging and acknowledge diversity and differences.. By creating spaces like this, it allows society to become more empathetic and supportive toward each other, which creates a more positive and secure environment throughout communities.

From ‘Uneasy Lies the Head: The Autobiography of His Majesty King Hussein I of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan’

THE MAIN TRIBAL INSTITUTION Al Madafa is a traditional form of guest house that emphasizes the social, economic and political role and function of Sheikhs as traditional leaders, giving them a place where they exercise their power and influence over members of the tribe, and a place where members of the tribe can strengthen their ties and obligations. In addition, the guest house is a traditional institution where the concentration of tribal authorities is seen, and tribalism is reinforced as an attitude. It is a symbol of assimilation for the tribe, and the means of supporting a group political identity, forming a mutual feeling of shared practices. The Madafa played a significant social, economic and political role in the life of Jordanians, who considered it demonstrative of the structure of local politics in the villages.

THE NEW FORM OF GUESTHOUSE The development of modernization and social change did not erase Al-Madafa entirely. What occurred was that the shape of this social institution was modified and became Diwan. The arrangement and functions of the guest house transformed from those of a customary political institution and meeting place of all members of a tribe to those of a Diwan. The Diwan as a tribe institution embodies a new form of guest house and representative traditional political institution, designated by a joint affiliation with the formal political structure. The guest house has come to signify and embody no longer the personal identity of the owner of the Madafa, but rather the tribe’s identity, which clarifies the communal character of the activities in the Diwan. The Diwan is the place where all members of the tribe meet for various social events.

BACKGROUND It should be noted that a study carried out in Irbid town of Jordan addressed some issues associated with the Madafa. It is a master thesis, which targeted the association among the tribe and state in a single hand and the Madafa in the second. The study revealed that an important transformation has taken place from the Madafa in which the relationship was between the 'ego' (the owner of the Madafa) and the 'other' (the stranger) to a place where the relationship is between 'us' and the 'others': us refers to all members of the tribe, and the others refers to strangers. Moreover, the study discovered that nowadays all individuals of the tribe own the Madafa, while formerly it was owned solely by the sheikh. AL MADAFA

AL DIWAN

SOLUTION The objective of this project is to create a new guesthouse concept. What was once a space that belonged to a particular tribe or group will be reformed into a space that belongs and tells the story of the entire community. a public space where everyone is a stranger without social responsibilities and roles and where people can feel a sense of belonging in a highly segregated society.

ARCHITECTURAL CHARACTER OF THE AREA

LOCATION The site is located along the Madaba highway in the hub of Umm Al Amad, south-west of the new Diwan of Mithqal Al Fayez and north-east of Mithqal Al Fayez’ Mosque. The site encloses 4 buildings with an area of approximately 7,500 m2. The main building is the guesthouse and the other 3 buildings are hay warehouses situated closely together.

RESPECT YOUR NEIGHBOR PHASE 1: PRESERVATION According to The Burra Charter, a book that provides guidance for the conservation and management of places of cultural significance. “Places of cultural significance tell us about who we are and the past that has formed us. They are irreplaceable, precious, and must be conserved for present and future generations.” The guesthouse of Sheikh Mithqal Al Fayez once helped create and maintain the tribe’s identity; it is a place where many stories have been told and has stood as a representation of society. Therefore, and out of respect for our neighbors (Al Fayez tribe), the guesthouse will foster a silent exhibition dedicated to their Sheikh and tribe history, a place that will function forever as a living memorial. In order to preserve the authentic sense of the guesthouse’ history, conservation actions must take place. The first strategy is to repair rather than replace wherever possible, historic characters shall be retained, preserving as much of the original fabric as possible. Incase replace work must be done, efforts should be made to match the type and color of the original stone and brick. As for the interior walls and spaces they should be protected with structural and roof materials that ensure their durability (Traditional and local materials should be employed here). Any elements of significance such as Mariam’s oven should be kept safe.

ONE CHANCE RULE PHASE 2: RENOVATION Historic buildings and their remains, should be protected from further deterioration, restored and adapted to modern requirements and modern social changes. In the case of this project, the warehouse (Al Bayka) in the ground floor of the guest house and the 3 warehouses on site will be renovated to accommodate new functions. The renovation strategies used in this phase are based on reversibility. “True architecture should offer people an empty space; temporarily occupy it but never permanently.” Therefore, in order for restoration to be possible in the future, physical interventions are kept to a minimum and the work is limited to essentials. Such work include treating degradations in the walls and openings of the warehouses and the major structural ruin in the roof of Al Bayka. Flexible and lightweight materials such as glass and steel are used to ensure the options of reinstatement in the future.

HUMAN INTERACTION FIRST PHASE 3: INTEGRATION

The last phase of the conservation actions taken in this project is the integration of new structures on site. These structures are stairs and bridges linking the 3 warehouses together. Steel stairs will be situated on the sides of each building allowing us to take advantage of the roofs in order to create outdoor spaces. Each roof will have its own function and user experience. All roofs will be connected together through steel and glass bridges.

STORYTELLING

The Force For Social Change

Storytelling helps us understand others; it has the ability to aid us in learning about people as well as understanding them and their situations. Whether we actually know the individual or not, hearing their story evokes feelings such as trust, kindness, and empathy within us. It motivates us to work together and positively influences our social behavior. Because of this, stories have a unique ability to build connections between people. Therefore, the project will provide storytelling spaces, a platform for sharing stories in any form, where there is no hierarchy, and where people from different backgrounds, tribes and regions can come together and take part in this experience.

TYPES OF STORYTELLING ORAL

MUSIC

PERFORMANCE

The relationship of “Us” and “Them” demonstrated in Al Madafa and Al Diwan will no longer be expressed. Instead, the new Madafa concept will be the host to all tribes and families of Jordan, contributing to the shared public image and character of society.
