Design Week explores new possibilitiesThe third edition of Amman Design Week launched Friday in the Jordanian capital, with the aim of promoting innovation, exchange and the opportunity to tackle regional challenges from a new angle. The noncommercial platform gathers over 200 participants for 140 events taking place Oct. 4-12, with an expanded program of curated exhibitions, talks, workshops and cultural projects distributed across three districts in Amman -- Ras al-Ain, Jabal Amman and Jabal al-Lweibdeh.Curated by Noura al-Sayeh-Holtrop, ADW's main exhibition at The Hangar (a renovated electricity facility in Ras al-Ain) showcases diverse works -- architecture, fashion, products, furniture and graphic design -- by local and international designers.One project is a stone column by Palestine's Elias and Yousef Anastas, made from architectural ruins.Certain projects at The Hangar are more like installations and could easily be imagined on show at an art biennale. Jordan's Omar Sartawi's piece fits neatly in this category.
