The Center for the Study of the Built Environment is what we call a non-profit, private study, and research institution which was founded in the year 1999. It was built with the aim to address the challenges which are affecting the built environment in Jordan and beyond. Now the built environment is something that has been defined in a comprehensive manner. It includes all types of physical components of human settlements like buildings, open spaces, streets, and infrastructure. CSBE is thus a center that is addressing all the areas including environmental studies, conservation, urban design and planning, landscape architecture, and construction technologies.
